Errors, SharePoint 2013

SharePoint 2013 Search Error: 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 the repository being crawled is a SharePoint repository, verify that the account you are using has “Full Read” permissions on the SharePoint Web Application being crawled.

I had an issue while trying to crawl my sites content, even after reviewing that the account had enough permissions and also the FULL READ that the error message suggested… after a little research I found out that the issue was related to the LoopBackCheck

In case you are not familiar with this SharePoint headache, here is a Powershell script that will add the registry key needed for this fix.

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

After this just start a full crawl again.

  1. Hi I am not so lucky. SPAutoInstaller sets this for me automatically ( it also adds sp_searchcontent to mysite webapp. One thing, I haven’t configured UPS yet as I am waiting confirmation as to what OUs my client wants to include. Would this be a cause of the error?

    1. Hi Daniel, you can discard that option by removing the “sps3://My_Site_host_URL” from your content source, this is the one that crawls the user profiles. If the error persist its unlikely that the UPS is the problem.
