Search Server Node Lock Error "The handle is invalid" Causing Automation Job Failures (Doc ID 1954352.1)

Last updated on OCTOBER 31, 2019

Applies to:

Oracle WebCenter Interaction - Version and later
Microsoft Windows x64 (64-bit) - Version: 2008 R2


Automation Server jobs that make calls to the search server fail. Search server nodes are having trouble getting a file handle for files in the Cluster Share Requests folder.

The following errors show up in the search server node logs at the time of the failure:

Error opening index request data file=\\<SERVER_NAME>\PTSEARCHCLUSTER\requests\<DELTA_INDEX>\<DELTA_FILE>.delta
Error FILE_OPEN_FAILED in ..\..\src\ at line 167 (system error code 6: The handle is invalid.)
IndexRequest <DELTA_INDEX> didn't deserialize properly
Error FILE_OPEN_FAILED in ..\..\src\ at line 891 (system error code 6: The handle is invalid.)

Crawls and other jobs might fail until these errors are resolved and the Search Service is restarted.
