Content index problem

  Asked By: Lukas    Date: Sep 07    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 1342

I had some hiccups with my search not too long ago and have it ironed out but now I'm getting this error message.

Event Type: Error

Event Source: Microsoft SharePointPS Search Service

Event Category: Gatherer

Event ID: 3090

Date: 6/16/2005

Time: 2:10:25 PM

User: N/A

The gatherer files from the previous checkpoint cannot be restored, and this action cannot be completed. The gatherer will attempt to restore the files again. If the problem persists, restart the service, free system resources or verify that your hardware is working properly.

Context: http://XXX.sharepoint.XXXXX.net/ Application, Non_Portal_Content Catalog


The content index is not loaded. Stop and restart the search service. If the problem persists, review other errors in the event log. If necessary, delete and recreate the content index. (0x80041117)

From what I have been able to gather is that I need to delete and recreate the content index. The problem is I can't even get into the site level search configuration to accomplish. Does anyone have any ideas?

I'm not sure if it's related but I had a similar issue
with the search  when I tried to remove the index
server from the server farm. What happened is that
the web server alters the registry so that the index
server now has the search catalogs. When the server
is removed, the web server did not reset the registry
keys back to their original values, therefore
disabling the search for good.. including the search
management page. This happens when the default search
catalogs somehow get corrupted or the web server
does'nt know how to access them. The client never
took the time to call Microsoft since the application
got shipped overseas. I'll have to rumage through my
old files  to find the KB article that describes the
search registry keys.
