Error in crawl log

  Asked By: Korey    Date: May 05    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 2158

I keep getting this error in the crawl log..

Element not found. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x8002802B
(TYPE_E_ELEMENTNOTFOUND)) (ComInterop Exception)

This error is very disturbing because the url that this error appears
under is the main portal site with all the content.

I have no idea what to do here..any suggestions?

Saw on another newsgroup that someone had this error  occur with SQL 2000
(related to MSXML extensions). They upgraded to SQL 2005 and it cleared it up.
Is there anything in the event log  around the same timeframe that might narrow
it down? Any errors related to MSXML?

We are currently running SQL 2005..
Here is something from the application event log  right at the time the full
crawl is scheduled..Maybe you can make something of it...

In addition, it seems to crawl  the SSP admin site  and the MySite host just fine,
but not the main  portal..

That makes me wonder about whether (a) your alternate access mappings
are set properly, or, probably more likely, (b) whether the content
source start addresses and the crawl  settings are correct. Just a
shot in the dark. Go to your shared services administration, click on
search settings, content  sources, and see what the entries under
"Local Office SharePoint Server sites" look like.

I will do that..thanks for the response..
I happened across this blog entry and read it..I also did an iisreset, and the
crawl worked the way it was supposed to and I was able to get meaningful search
But I assume that soon, it will stop working again..
Here is the blog I found..
