Hi,

I have MOSS 2007 SP3 installed on a single server farm with the SQL database installed on another server. For some reason, the search function stopped returning any results since last week. From the event log, we can see the below error being generated constantly:
Event Type:      Error
Event Source:      Office Server Search
Event Category:      Gatherer
Event ID:      10027
Date:            30.06.2013
Time:            13:59:39
User:            N/A
Computer:      SPT-DC01
Description:
Failed to update committed transaction in SQL, DocID is 3.

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

We tried resetting the crawl index and restarting it using the below steps but it still does not work:
1. Open Central Administration on the SharePoint Server.
2. Click the Shared Service Provider's name on the left hand side.
3. Within the Shared Service Provider's page there is a link called "Search settings". It is under a blue bar title called Search.
4. On the Search Settings page click the "Reset all crawled content" link. It is the 10th bullet down in the "Crawl Settings" section .
5. Select the Reset Now button on the Reset Crawled Content page.
That should result in the "Items in index" to be set to 0.
The next step is to perform a full crawl on your content source(s).
1. Open Central Administration on the SharePoint Server.
2. Click the Shared Service Provider's name on the left hand side.
3. Within the Shared Service Provider's page there is a link called "Search settings". It is under a blue bar title called Search.
4. On the Search Settings pas click the "Content sources and crawl schedules" link. It is the first bullet down in the "Crawl Settings" section.
5.Select the content source you wish to crawl.
6. At the bottom of the content source's page there is a checkbox with the words "Start full crawl of this content source". Check this box and select OK.
Context: Application 'SharedServices001', Catalog 'Portal_Content'

Any clue as to what could be the issue here?

Thanks in advance!

Could be related to your backup (?)
This can happen due to VERITAS backup software that we have.
• It has been documented on Symantec site.

Solution:

• To resolve this issue we have to either reboot the server or upgrade to latest backup edition of VERITAS.
• You can get more information on :
o http://support.veritas.com/docs/294181

Have found the solution. It was due to some windows updates that were installed. I had to install MOSS 2007 service pack 3 and it resolved the issue.
