We are having disk space issues on our sharepoint server as the SQL error log in constantly filling up. The errors in event viewer are:

EVENT ID 10027
Failed to update committed transaction in SQL, DocID is 5983.

Context: Application 'Search index file on the search server', Catalog 'Search'

      One or more errors occurred during processing of command.   (0x80040e14)

For more information, see Help and Support Center at

EVENT ID 10036
 database error occurred.

Source: Microsoft OLE DB Provider for SQL Server
Code: 8630 occurred 1 time(s)
Description: Internal Query Processor Error: The query processor encountered an unexpected error during execution.

Context: Application 'Search index file on the search server'

Any ideas of the cause?

Thanks for that.
We have stopped and then started the Search Service, then created a new database for the serches to use. This in turn has stopped the error from being produced in the event viewer.

Thanks for your Help

Excellent - You'll want to double check the search crawling settings to make sure the search credentials are correct etc.  

Search for "Sharepoint search service config" on google and you'll find help for that.
