Unable to crawl File share content RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    We are working on Migrating search service application to SharePoint 2013. We have a content source with File share as the source. When crawling the content in SP 2013 environment we are seeing below error.

    Access is denied. Verify that either the Default Content Access Account has access to this repository, or add a crawl rule to crawl this repository. If the repository being crawled is a SharePoint repository, verify that the account you are using has "Full Read" permissions on the SharePoint Web Application being crawled. ( SearchID = 39B99864-D92A-4B4C-922C-4CEA91895578 )

    • We are using same service account to crawl the content in SP 2010 and SP 2013 environments and permissions are in place.
    • We are able to access the content (Network drive) from the server using same account.
    • Verified Disableloopbackcheck (regedit) is enabled.

    Your help will be greatly appreciated.

  • Hi Lisa Chen,

    This issue is with GPO permissions on network share. After providing permissions on network share issue resolved.

    Thanks alot for your help.
