Failed to index one of the configurations



When starting up my EPiServer website application after changing something in the web.config, my event log registers this:

Failed to index one of the configurations, please see the EPiServer Indexer log for more information. [Error: Failed on Query].

It only happens once per startup, and I've had a look in my EPiServer.IndexingService.exe.config file, but all three of the entries in there have valid connection strings and mappings.

I don't suppose anyone has any idea what might be causing this?

Could you check that the itemRoot names are correct inside EPiServer.IndexingService.exe.config file?

Hey Mari, thanks for replying!

The itemRoot names are indeed correct.

Any ideas?

Delete the contents of EPiServer.IndexingService.exe.config file and run the stop and restart the episerver indexing service
