SHAREPOINTER 1 Reputation point


I have to restore a SP 2013 farm - all of it - search, web apps, custom code - the lot....to a new farm...

I have carried out a full farm backup but in spbackup.log i get lots of errors related to search dbs...here is one of many:

FatalError: Object Bld_SP2013_Service_Search failed in event OnBackupComplete. For more information, see the spbackup.log or sprestore.log file located in the backup directory.
Aborted due to error in another component.

Why do i get backup errors related to search in a full farm backup please?

    According to my understanding of your problem, when you performing a full backup, you find backup errors involving the Search Service database.


    1.Identify the Search Service Account.

    2.Navigate to the intranet folder to which you intend to write full farm backups

    3Grant the Search Service Account the following permissions to this folder:

    • Read
    • Write

    For more information, please see this post "SharePoint 2013: FatalError: Object Search Service failed in event OnBackup".
