SharePoint: Error, EventID 6482

Filed under: Errors,SharePoint — phil @ 8:14 am

Log entry:
Application Server Administration job failed for service instance Microsoft.Office.Server.Search.Administration.SearchServiceInstance (2059dee5-7de2-4e07-ba60-3a5630abdbe1).

Reason: Object 67211af6-bd76-4344-852c-3d331ab57d81-query-0 not found.

Technical Support Details:
System.Collections.Generic.KeyNotFoundException: Object 67211af6-bd76-4344-852c-3d331ab57d81-query-0 not found.
at Microsoft.Office.Server.Search.Administration.SearchServiceInstance.Synchronize()
at Microsoft.Office.Server.Administration.ApplicationServerJob.ProvisionLocalSharedServiceInstances(Boolean isAdministrationServiceJob)

What’s going on? The service account specified for “Windows Service – SharePoint Server Search” does not have permissions in DCOM to launch and activate.

The fix:

  1. Go to the Control Panel on the SharePoint application server running search
  2. Launch Component Services
  3. Browse to Component Services – Computers – My Computer – DCOM Config – OSearch14
  4. Right-click OSearch14 and choose Properties
  5. Go to the Security tab and click the first Edit button (under Launch and Activation Permissions)
  6. Add the domain\username of your service account and make sure the check boxes for Local Launch and Local Activation are checked

You should no longer receive Event ID 6482 errors.

  1. I still get this error even after adding in the account noted in the event log for local activation and launch. This is the farm account. I also added the search account and checked database permissions for both users to all three Search_Service_Application DBs (CrawlStoreDB, DB, and PropertyStoreDB) it has db_owner to those databases. I also checked and see if the search server account had DCOM and access to those databases and they do also.
