After logging to the Sitecore content tree, getting the below error while performing the search.

An error occured while searching. Rephrase the query.

Could not resolve type name: Sitecore.Pipelines.Search.SearchSystemIndex, Sitecore.Kernel (method: Sitecore.Configuration.DefaultFactory.CreateFromTypeName(XmlNode configNode, String[] parameters, Boolean assert)).

The search is working fine when we perform search in web site. Using SOLR 5.1 version for search.

In Sitecore 7.2 you have bellow configurations into \Website\App_Config\Include\Sitecore.ContentSearch.config file :

             This processor executes search expressions that use the Sitecore.ContentSearch indexes when the Search.UseLegacySearchEngine setting is set to false.
        <processor patch:before="*[@type='Sitecore.Pipelines.Search.SearchSystemIndex, Sitecore.Kernel']" type="Sitecore.ContentSearch.Client.Pipelines.Search.SearchContentSearchIndex, Sitecore.ContentSearch.Client" />

and into web.config

    <!-- other processors -->
    <processor type="Sitecore.Pipelines.Search.SearchSystemIndex, Sitecore.Kernel" />
    <!-- other processors -->       

In Sitecore 8 these configurations doesn't exist.

Please comment these lines of code for a short fix. Please compare your config files with config files from a clean Sitecore solution which has same release with your version.

  • Thanks for your suggestion. By doing what is suggested above, the error vanished but the search is not happening. For every search even if item is present in content tree, it show message as "There is no Match" Mar 5, 2018 at 18:40
  • Like i said in answer, please compare config files with a clean instalation, looks like your config files were not upgraded correctly Mar 5, 2018 at 19:11
  • Thanks for your support. The search is happening now. Only changes I had done is commented the tag mentioned by you in web.config Mar 6, 2018 at 11:40
  • please mark the answer as correct if it solved your issue Mar 6, 2018 at 11:45
