While playing around with the beta preview builds, a problem with the search service application was discovered and here is a description and fix for it:

Applies to "SharePoint 2013 PREVIEW build"

Problem Description:

Search Topology fails to complete provisioning.
When you navigate to the Search Administration page to view the Topology In the UI under the Search Application Topology, you will see the following Error Message

Search Application Topology
Unable to retrieve topology component health states. This may be because the admin component is not up and running.

Symptoms:

Error Message: The Search Topology Fails to complete Provisioning /initialize successfully

The Following events may accompany this error:
Event Log Errors: Application Server Administration job failed for service instanceMicrosoft.Office.Server.Search.Administration.SearchServiceInstance
Reason:Failed to connect to system manager. SystemManagerLocations: net.tcp://../AdminComponent1/Management

Technical Support Details: System.InvalidOperationException: Failed to connect to system manager. SystemManagerLocations: net.tcp://../AdminComponent1/Management ---> System.ServiceModel.EndpointNotFoundException: There was no endpoint listening at net.tcp://../AdminComponent1/Management/NodeController that could accept the message. This is often caused by an incorrect address or SOAP action. See InnerException, if present, for more details.

Resolution:

Install these fixes:

· KB 2567680 in addition to KB 2554876, KB 2708075, KB 2472264

and as recommended in the Install SharePoint 2013 Preview across multiple servers for a three-tier farm documentation on TechNet.

Maybe a reboot of the server should be done after installing the fixes and then everything is fine and search is back working again Winking smile

  • Hi does this works in SP 2013 RTM? I facing the same issue in 2013 RTM.

  • @Patrick: Have you installed the hotfixes mentioned above on your RTM setup? If yes and issue still persists, Please install the March PU (http://blogs.technet.com/b/steve_chen/archive/2013/03/22/3560441.aspx) and read also here the important advise on how to do that correctly: http://blogs.technet.com/b/tothesharepoint/archive/2013/03/13/how-to-install-update-packages-on-a-sharepoint-farm-where-search-component-and-high-availability-search-topologies-are-enabled.aspx ;-)
