I received an e-mail today with the below error.  I've done some searches, and found posts for the subject line, but not this specific error message.  I haven't seen any impact to the SAS environment.  I can still browse and search for files within the SASVA hub.  The indexing server is still running.  Is this something I should be concerned about?


Search Interface to SAS Content encountered error while feeding the content to the Indexing Server

Error Message: Encountered problem while retrieving content for these type(s) "HistoryFolder".

Check Web Application Server logs for more details.

Once the issue is resolved, please check Integrating Search Interface to SAS Content document for - How to recover lost data for Indexing Server after Indexing Failure under FAQ section.

Please give a look to:


Last resort (not a friend of this one, but necessary in some cases), to disable email notifications for this service:


Without more information is hard to know what is the cause of your problem, hence, hard to give an exact solution. But those 3 SAS notes have solved 99% of my troubles with the Search Interface to SAS Content.


Hope it helps!


Kind regards.
