Lost connection to my search app - Errors RRS feed

  • Question

  • In my dev. environment, something has happened. I returned to it from some days abscence, and discovered that it was crawling on the 380th hour! I have three contentsources which normally take about 15 minutes to crawl, and now it's crawled for hours and hours. The crawl log is full of different errors, but I think my real problem lies somewhere else. The Event Log on the machine is flooding with errors, about 3 or 4 different. The errors repeats themselves every 5 minutes or so.

    I restarted the machine, and this is the order the errors appear in in the event viewer after the restart:

    1.  Application Server Administration job failed for service instance Microsoft.Office.Server.Search.Administration.SearchServiceInstance (e20f0ba1-e70c-4ed7-904d-3d255eba813e).

    Reason: The device is not ready.

    2. An exception occurred when trying to issue security token: Could not connect to http://localhost:32843/SecurityTokenServiceApplication/securitytoken.svc/actas. TCP error code 10061: No connection could be made because the target machine actively refused it 127.0.0.1:32843. .

    3. Application Server Administration job failed for service instance Microsoft.Office.Server.Search.Administration.SearchServiceInstance (e20f0ba1-e70c-4ed7-904d-3d255eba813e).

    Reason: There is no project Portal_Content mounted under gatherer application 429fa2b4-cfd4-4225-97da-f63c3f2f04d3.

    4. Failed to connect to fastsrvr.domainone.website.no:13390 Failed to initialize session with document engine: Unable to resolve Contentdistributor

    5. An exception occurred while updating addresses for connected app {274c1300-bb33-47a7-83bc-a66b1eda9e81_783d8c1d-9a55-468a-8150-b12105ff2b33}. The uri endpoint information may be stale. System.InvalidOperationException: The requested application could not be found.

    The errors appears often, and sometimes in another order.

    I have checked the fw, and there is an ongoing communication on the 13391/13390 ports. I don't know where the problem lies. All services are running on the FAST-server, and seemlingly also on the SP server. I have tried restarting both servers to no avail.

    Anyone?

  • Hi,

    There are two common causes of this:
    -          The FAST server disks are full or have issues

    -          Antivirus software is halting FAST

    Can you investigate if either of the two occurring?

    Thanks!
