  • The content index metadata cannot be read.

    Hi gr8 guys in the forum

    please look at that attachment and suggest the resolution.


    This is on my DC (primary) which had network shares too including roaming profiles. At times users complaint of the profile not loading issue and also network drives unavailable. A server reboot usually fix it. But this is not the resolution which we can live with. Recently it was noted that when the above problem occured following services were stopped automatically.
    Network connection manager/server/secondary logon/logical disk manager etc

    Please suggest a permanent resolution for me. This is happening for months now

    ThankQ so very much in advance

    Re: The content index metadata cannot be read.

    You want to give us just a little hint about
    Operating System?
    Domain and forest functional levels?
    Does it apply to all servers?

          never noticed that. is it normal uninstall from control panel or any different needs to be done. never dealt with this before.

            Yes, uninstall it from Control Panel. There are no consequences to uninstalling it.

              As joeqwerty says uninstall it from the control panel.

              As far as i know there are no adverse effects from removing it from the system.
