Share Point 2013 – Access is denied. Verify that either the Default Content Access Account has access to this repository, or add a crawl rule to crawl this repository.

Today I am fixing all warnings/errors that have occurred on my SharePoint server, here is a new warning encountered:

  • Share Point 2013 – Access is denied. Verify that either the Default Content Access Account has access to this repository, or add a crawl rule to crawl this repository.

If you look at your Search Service Application Crawl log it will give you an error with a count. Run the following command to disable the loop back:

  • New-ItemProperty HKLM:\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\Lsa -Name “DisableLoopbackCheck” -Value “1” -PropertyType dword

After that Restart Share Point Server Search Service.

Now go back to your Content sources and start a new crawl. Everything should be successful.

Hope it helps.

DPM 2012 R2 & SharePoint 2013 Backup

I wanted to modify my Sharepoint Protection Group on DPM to backup Sharepoint 2013 so I can do item level restore. When expanding the server and Sharepoint farm I got presented with the following error:

DPMSharepointSo the first thing I did was check my VSS writers, you can do so as follows:

  • VSSAdmin ListWriters

Everything seemed fine. Permissions were set on the SQL Server VSS writer service with a domain account. Restarted the service, no luck.

Only thing I found was that 1 of the SharePoint Databases was giving an error. It was the WSS_Usage DB. I removed this DB, created a new one and then checked. All the errors in event viewer were gone.

I now went back to DPM, edited my protection group and I was able to select my Sharepoint farm.

Hope it helps.
