Today I'm facing a problem with Document ID look-up, after went through all the steps:

  • Activate Document ID and Document Set feature
  • Run Document ID job assignment and Document enable timer job

My Document ID column was finally created successfully, however when I browse the link _layouts/DocIdRedir.aspx?ID=MYID-5-2 this error shows up:

Could not look up Document ID "MYID-5-2" due to an error encountered in Microsoft Search Server. Error in the application.

I've googled for so long but could not find a solution for my problem.

This is a permissions issue with SharePoint app pool 80.

You can not use network services account. Instead choose a "domain administrator" account.
