Error after importing the users profiles in SSP>Profmain.aspx page


Error after importing the users profiles in SSP>Profmain.aspx page “The user profile database connection cannot be made because of error”

Why this happens :

 – Profmain.aspx calls importStatus.LastCrawlSeedStatus to determine if an error occurred during the last profile import.

– If the LastCrawlSeedStatus value is not 0, it checks importStatus.LastLogEntry and provides the text message from the log

– LastCrawlSeedStatus is a property of the content source People_Import (Hidden Content Source)

– If the registry HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Office Server\12.0\Search\Applications\<GUID>\Gather\ProfileImport\ContentSources\0\StartPages\0

Or if the registry HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Office Server\12.0\Search\Applications\<GUID>\Gather\ProfileImport\ContentSources\1\StartPages\0

– If the value to anything other than 0, we can reproduce problem

– The search account should have full control on this registry key

– The SSP account should have read access to this key.

How to Fix it :-

– Open the registry on the indexer server

– Checke the value of “lastCrawlSeedStatus” in the registry at HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Office Server\12.0\Search\Applications\<GUID>\Gather\ProfileImport\ContentSources\0\StartPages\0

– And checke the value of “lastCrawlSeedStatus” in the registry at HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Office Server\12.0\Search\Applications\<GUID>\Gather\ProfileImport\ContentSources\1\StartPages\0

– We changed the value to 0

– Restart search service on Index server (better restart the server if you can due to too long waiting for stopping and starting the Office SharePoint Search Services)
