FIXED – Unable to search item by ID (Your search returned no results)

Recently I resolved an on-premise search issue where typing an ID number into the list view “Find an item” bar gave zero results.   The list definitely had matching data and search full crawl was completed.

The fix was to update “ListitemID” to be searchable on the Search Service Application (SSA), click “Re-Index” button under List Settings, and wait for the next incremental crawl.  Cheers!

Resolution

  • Open Central Admin
  • Open Search Service Application
  • Open “Search Schema” and type “ListItemID
  • Check the box [X] for “Searchable
  • Navigate to team site with user content
  • Open “List Settings > Advanced settings”
  • Click button “Reindex List”
  • Wait for incremental search
  • Now works OK

FIXED – Search Host Controller won’t start 1067 / 6482 HTTP endpoint

There are many common causes for Search Host Controller stuck on starting (won’t start).   I have a new cause to add to the community body of knowledge.  TCP port 808 being used by another process can cause SharePoint 2016 Search Host Controller Windows Service to fail to start.  Strange cause, I know.  Maybe this post helps another SP admin avoid hours of endless troubleshooting.

Cheers!

Symptom

  • Search Application Topology > Unable to retrieve topology component health states. This may be because the admin component is not up and running.
  • Windows Services > Error 1067: The process terminated unexpectedly.
  • EventLog > You have tried to create a channel to a service that does not support .Net Framing. It is possible that you are encountering an HTTP endpoint.
  • ULS > Unexpected
  • WcfService: Got CommunicationException out when trying to open the HostController servicehost. Shutting down process.  – threadId: 14 – exception: System.ServiceModel.AddressAlreadyInUseException:
    The TransportManager failed to listen on the supplied URI using the NetTcpPortSharing service: the service failed to listen.   

Cause

  • IIS Website is actively listening on TCP port 808
  • Search Host Controller requires this port and cannot start.

Resolution

  • Modify IIS Website to listen on a different port number.
  • Search Host Controller service will now start.

FIXED – DeleteElementAddToMyColleaguesURL People Search

If you ever see the below People Search error go double check your indexed User Profile Properties.   I saw this recently and the root cause was a missing “Indexed” checkbox.   Enabling the Indexed checkbox for Account Name and crawling again fixed the issue.   Thanks to Puneet for the tip on this one.

System.NullReferenceException: Object reference not set to an instance of an object. at System.Xml.XmlNode.RemoveChild(XmlNode oldChild) at Microsoft.Office.Server.Search.WebControls.PeopleCoreResultsWebPart.DeleteElementAddToMyColleaguesURL(XmlNode result) at Microsoft.Office.Server.Search.WebControls.PeopleCoreResultsWebPart.CreateXmlDocument() at Microsoft.Office.Server.Search.WebControls.PeopleCoreResultsWebPart.SortBySocialDistance() at Microsoft.Office.Server.Search.WebControls.PeopleCoreResultsWebPart.GetXPathNavigator(String viewPath)
