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.

Office 365 missing Datasheet – Use Access ACCDB

For bulk editing of SharePoint list data, we used to have Datasheet (ActiveX control) in the old MOSS 2007 / SP2010 days.   SP2013 gave us Quick Edit (JavaScript based) with compatibility across multiple browsers and works well for simple edits.

However, sometimes we want a more robust bulk edit.  Sort, filter, keyboard navigation, copy/paste, and more full features.   MS Access can help with the “External Data” feature.

Now we can make changes to SPList with MS Access for a faster advanced user experience than Quick Edit in the browser.

Cheers!

Steps

  1. Open MS Access
  2. Create new database
  3. Click “External Data”
  4. More: SharePoint List
  5. Type in your site URL:  https://tenant.sharepoint.com/sites/team
  6. Link to the Data Source
  7. Next
  8. Select the list
  9. OK

Office 365 – Hybrid Team Site Redirect AAM

Migrating team sites to Office 365?  Worried about broken links?  Check this out.

Recently I found a helpful STSADM trick that provides HTTP redirection for hybrid SharePoint farms moving team sites into the Office 365 cloud.   As we migrate sites and remove from the source farm on-premise users will see 404 Page Not Found when open old URLs.

However, we can use STSADM to provide a “<RedirectUrl>” Alternate Access Mapping (AAM) property on the source SharePoint Web Application (http://portal/*) which redirects user traffic to a destination Office 365 Tenant (ex:  https://tenant.sharepoint.com/*)

If you are gradually moving team sites into the cloud with third party tools (ShareGate, Metalogix, DocAve, etc.) this trick is invaluable to preserve a smooth user experience where old links will seamlessly redirect to Office 365 team sites in the cloud.  Cheers!
