Server Fault is a question and answer site for system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

Installed SharePoint Services v3 (SP2, october 2009 cumulative updates, Language Pack), attached to a content database I had previously (all works). Installed Search server 2008 Express (with language pack) on top of WSS and crawl does not work. However it works for newly created web application + database.

Was playing around with accounts, permissions to try get it working. Currently I have WSS_Crawler account with such permissions:

  • Office Search Server runs with WSS_Crawler account
  • Config database has read permissions for WSS_Crawler
  • Content database has read permissions for WSS_Crawler
  • WSS_Crawler is owner of search database.
  • Added WSS_Crawler to SQL server browser user group and administrator

Yes, i'v given more permissions than needed, but it doesn't even work with that and i don't know if its permission problem or what.

Crawl log says there is Error in the Site Data Web Service., nothing more. There were known issues with a similar error: Error in the Site Data Web Service. (Value does not fall within the expected range.), but this is not the case as thats an old issue and i hope it has been included in SP2...

Logs are from olders to newest (descending order). They don't appear to be very helpful.

What could be wrong here - any clues?

This can be a problem if your UserInfo table in the database has corrupted SIDs in it. I could definitely see this happening if you attached an existing content db rather than doing backup/restore. The way to test/fix it is:

  1. Run the following command against your content database in SQL Server:

    Select tp_login, tp_systemid, tp_deleted from userinfo where len(ltrim(rtrim(tp_systemid))) <25 and tp_deleted = 0

  2. For any users returned by the query (except for system users), give the user read permission at the root of the site collection. (System users include: NT AUTHORITY\authenticated users, NT AUTHORITY\local service, NT AUTHORITY\system, SHAREPOINT\system

  3. Rerun the query to make sure it has no results; when there are no results, start a full crawl.

Here is a blog post that talks about this solution.

Yes, i`v tried that already, but that query only returns nt authority\local service and sharepoint\system user for me. I deleted local service from site collection then, but couldn't do that with sharepoint\system. Ofcourse, rerunning the query, i would still get that system user... –  Janis Veinbergs Mar 16 '10 at 12:02
    
Also, a solution mentioned doing -export and -import is not suitable for production environment, as it will not preserve Modified and Modified By fields :( –  Janis Veinbergs Mar 16 '10 at 12:03

@Janis Veinbergs: it is OK if you still get the system user (and local service actually) so corrupt SIDs are clearly not your problem. Unfortunately the only other solution I can think of is recreating the site collection with export/import. –  MattB Mar 16 '10 at 13:54

I had the same issue today. Found that the sites were not opening from the index server. The web.config was corrupted with duplicate entries. Cleaning this up resolved the issue.

After waiting, the search started to work... i don't know what caused the problem. The important thing is that it works!
