The internal search stopped working. It was working fine until I configured Solr.

The changes I made are :

Disable all Lucene configs except the DefaultIndexConfiguration.config and enabled all Solr configs.

In the Solr DefaultIndexConfiguration.config, I have included some templates & fields in the respective nodes &

this is set to true - <indexAllFields>true</indexAllFields>

enter image description here

There are no exceptions logged and I've checked Search.log, Crawling.log and the regular log.txt

Also, when I try to rebuild indexes in the Developer tab, it shows none.

Using Sitecore 8.0 Update 5

You can try to check configuration with Sitecore Role Checker Tool: https://github.com/reyrahadian/Sitecore-Server-Role-Checker

If you use SOLR all Lucene files should be disabled and when you use Lucene you should disable all SORL configuration files. You shouldn't use SORL & Lucene configuration files in parallel.


When I first configured Solr, I disabled all Lucene configs except Sitecore.ContentSearch.Lucene.DefaultIndexConfiguration.config

Now, I enabled Sitecore.ContentSearch.Lucene.Indexes.Sharded.Master.config and its working fine now.

  • All Lucene files need to be disabled including Sitecore.ContentSearch.Lucene.DefaultIndexConfiguration.config Aug 11, 2017 at 9:56
