Google search didn't yield anything fruitful. I think it's because if I configured the way most formally trained developers do, they know you have to do x,y, and z. Whereas I have 0 knowledge and am doing by trial and error.
Anyhow.. Application Log gave: EventData
string0 Microsoft.Office.Server.Search.Administration.SearchServiceInstance string1 1880d451-ff61-4b40-8070-3abe2e71e5fe string2 I/O error occurred. string3 System.IO.IOException: I/O error occurred. at
- Microsoft.Office.Server.Search.Administration.SearchServiceInstance.Synchronize() at Microsoft.Office.Server.Administration.ApplicationServerJob.ProvisionLocalSharedServiceInstances(Boolean isAdministrationServiceJob)
What I bolded, Google gave even fewer results when I included that in my search.
I'm thinking the problem has to do with what I underlined. I am having troubling understanding what in the world the search server instance synchronization is trying to access/do with the provisioned local shared service instance (and I have no idea what I just typed means).
Again, not asking you to do this for me but please point me to the correct area in central administration or the relevant technet articles that I should familiarize myself with in order to find out what they are so I can move forward in fixing.
