No crawler tasks? EP6 SPS16 Patch 2

Hello all,

I'm trying to accomplish a feat that was very easy to do in previous service packs, but things seem to have changed since SPS16 and now I'm looking for guidance.

We have plenty of experience with indexing and searching repositories in KM. All has worked well before. Now, since our upgrade to SPS16, I'm creating an index once again. The index is created with no problems and I add the data source(s), etc. In the Indexing Monitor, the index is green and the status says 'Pending.' However, no documents are indexed. I thought that was odd, so I went to the Crawler Monitor for the particular index, and there are no crawler tasks displayed. And the index simply sits at 'Pending' and goes no further.

I noticed that Sergey (in <a href="">this thread</a>) and Srinivasa (in <a href="">this thread</a>) have had very similar problems to mine (problems unfortunately that were never resolved in the threads), but they were both on SP11, not SP16.

Flushing the queue does not solve my problem. I'm unable to reindex. I see no errors in the application log (and made sure the standard crawler was set to log errors). The index does appear in the Index Monitor, but as I mentioned before, there are no Crawler Tasks, and I verified that the Crawler Service is indeed active.

Is this another bug in SPS16? We are already on patch 2. I'm hoping someone can shed some light on where I may be going wrong.

Thank you so much for any help,

there should not be such a fundamental error in this portal version. Could you check two things? Have you entered a system ID for the Indexmanagement Taskqueue Reader Task? If yes could you check the Component Monitor if something is not running there?
