SharePoint Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for SharePoint enthusiasts. It's 100% free, no registration required.

In our clean SP2010 install, crawling stops immediately, just logging a single error message:

The object was not found. ( Error from SharePoint site: HttpStatusCode NotFound The request failed with HTTP status 404: Not Found. )

Looking at the IIS log does, surprisingly, not confirm this. Here are all the log entries related to crawling:

As you can see, just a fairly normal handshaking of 401’s and 200’s.

Finally, here are the ULS log entries:

I see that someone else has a similar issue:

http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en/sharepoint2010setup/thread/f3c61b53-304a-4c2a-a370-d0e573219d1d

But in our case: - it's a clean install, no upgrading - Plain HTTP, no certificates

Any answer/input most appreciated!

Best regards

1 Answer 1

We resolved this issue by going back to crawling using the farm admin account. This project has a custom approach to authentication, using a custom MembershipProvider, which seems to bite us again and again. So, as a general advice, avoiding authenticating that way if you can. (And had the project started anew, they probably would have chosen a somewhat different approach…)

Regards

Thomas
