Indexing service called not using EpiServer Search



We are using Episerver Find and have 

But we get huge amount of log errors like this: 

System.Web.HttpException (0x80004005): The service '/IndexingService/IndexingService.svc' does not exist. ---> System.ServiceModel.EndpointNotFoundException: The service '/IndexingService/IndexingService.svc' does not exist.
at System.ServiceModel.ServiceHostingEnvironment.HostingManager.EnsureServiceAvailable(String normalizedVirtualPath, EventTraceActivity eventTraceActivity)
at System.ServiceModel.ServiceHostingEnvironment.EnsureServiceAvailableFast(String relativeVirtualPath, EventTraceActivity eventTraceActivity)

at System.ServiceModel.Activation.HostedHttpRequestAsyncResult.End(IAsyncResult result)
at System.ServiceModel.Activation.ServiceHttpModule.EndProcessRequest(IAsyncResult ar)
at System.Web.HttpApplication.AsyncEventExecutionStep.OnAsyncEventCompletion(IAsyncResult ar)

Does anyone know how I can avoid these logs? Is there some other function other than search that uses this service?

Kind regards, Josef henryson

Hi Josef,

Were you able to resolve this issue? We are also getting the same exception on our production environment and we have removed all the IndexingService related entried from our web.config file. Please give some pointers about how you got rid of this issue?

BVest Regards

Hi Rakesh, 

I'm sorry, it was over a year ago we had this issue. I don't remember exactly how we solved this, and I don't have access to the code at the moment. 

I believe we just filtered the logs (disabled some of the Epi loggers?) to exclude these kind of errors. It might also have been a configuration issue with system.web vs system.webServer, but I'm only guessing here. 

Hope you solve this. 

Cheers, Josef

In Admin/config and Search configuration. Does removing all providers that doesn't use find in the list help resolve this problem?

Do you have EPiServer.Search and EPiServer.Search.Cms nuget packages installed? You could try to uninstall those.
