Backup/indexer problem
I attempted to run a backup and got an error. The command and error are listed below: Stsadm -o Backup -directory <backup folder> -backupmethod full An indexer is not assigned to the Shared Services Provider 'SharedServices_64bit'. I then went to Shared Services Administration: SharedServices_64bit and under Search clicked on Search settings. The heading of the page that came up was Error, followed by An indexer is not assigned to the Shared Services Provider 'SharedServices_64bit'. Configure an indexer and a search database for this Shared Services Provider I clicked on the "Configure an indexer ... " link and got this: An unhandled exception occurred in the user interface.Exception Information: The specified account name is invalid. Parameter name: account I checked the Event logs and found the following Search error, but no mention of what account was giving me trouble.
