FAST for SharePoint 2010 – Cumulative Update August 2012

The Cumulative Update August 2012 for FAST Search Server for SharePoint 2010 is out for a while now – seems like nobody has tried this one yet. Or quality control has happened…

Updating FAST Search

When you install a service pack or a cumulative update for FAST you have to run the setup and then you have to start a FAST powershell and start “psconfig –action p” – otherwise your search won’t work because SAM Worker process is dead.

Cumulative Update August 2012

So what happens when you install the update? The installation went fine – I rebooted my server and then, as usually, I started the powershell to start the patch command! BAM!

Epic quality check fail!

Wonderful!

Solution

At least the fix for this problem is quite simple – and the powershell error is really helpful this time.

Open the file “<FASTInstall>\installer\scripts\include\commontasks.ps1” and go to line 169. Replace $script:$HOST_CONFIG_HOST_NAME with $script:HOST_CONFIG_HOST_NAME. Save the file and then start the patch again with “psconfig –action p” in the installer\scripts folder. After patching check with nctrl status if the SAM Worker is alive again.

Easy fix – just remove the $

Still, unbelievable.

Due to a hoster failure (servcity.de went bankrupt) my blog is currently without content. I am working on it.
