ssp/admin/content Error in the Site Data Web Service.

http://<root>/ssp/admin/content
Error in the Site Data Web Service.

What is it and what does it do?

- SharePoint 2007 SP2
- Windows Server 2003 SP2 32bit
- 3GB RAM

Just upgraded from MOSS 2007 SP1 to the latest SP2 + cumulative updates in our Test Environment.
 
Apart from the system out of memory errors, I am struggling to fix this issue with the above error message.

I am not sure if it actually affects the search results.  Can someone please explain and let me know what I should do to resolve the above error message?

Thanks, Ezs

There might be a lot of reasons associated to this error:

- see: http://davidlimsharepoint.blogspot.com/2010/03/error-in-site-data-web-service-no.html and check if SID corruption is the reason

- update IFilters if you have any (old PDF IFilters were buggy)

- reset search index (Search administration -> reset index) or even recreate search service (Central Adminstration -> Operations -> Services on server -> stop Office SharePoint Server Search -> Reboot server -> Start the search service)

- according to http://sharepointsearch.com/cs/blogs/ngropman/archive/2010/04/15/error-in-site-data-webservice.aspx check if ssp/admin/Content site has default.aspx

Thanks Pstry.

I did follow a page similar to David Lim's blog, but haven't recreated SSP as per the last link.

As for the iFilter, we are currently using Adobe iFilter 6.0.  Please note that our current environment is 32 bit.

I will try resetting the search index even though I have rebooted the server at the end of each day.

Cheers, Ezs

I would try newer IFilter. Adobe IFilter version 8 and 9 is available both for 32 and 64 bit systems.

So I just install Adobe Reader 9.4 and that should include iFilter is that right?

PstryCommented:
Yes, that's right. iFilter is already included in Adobe Reader and, as far as I know know, no special configuration is required.

Sorry for the late response, had to work on other issues encountered.  Will look into this issue this week and let you know how it goes.

Cheers, Ezs!

I am having a bit of difficulty finding Adobe 9 Reader as it takes me to Adobe X Reader, which doesn't have ifilter. :(
