Search Errors – Error Microsoft Windows SharePoint Services Protocol Handler

In order to clear this error that you may see in your error log in Central Administration, stop the Search Service.

This will detatch the indexer from the farm.

Start it up again and assign the correct server as the indexer.

Go to Shared Services and make sure you edit it so that you choose the indexer.

Go to your search settings, reset crawled content and re-crawl.

After I did that, got another horrible error: Element not found. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x8002802B (TYPE_E_ELEMENTNOTFOUND)) (ComInterop Exception).

Yes, nasty. I re-crawled content from the server directly and it is nicely crawling content again.
