Crawl error: Crawling ganttview.aspx

A very interesting error crossed my way the last week, you will find it in your SharePoint crawl log and it looks somewhat like this:


Which tells you that you can not crawl SharePoint2010’s ganttview.aspx which is the gantt view you can create for task lists or project task lists.

As often you can find the answer to this issue in the Microsoft forums:

Here is the solution suggested in the post. (I tested it in my environment and after changing the registry key suggested in the solution (and an reboot) the error went away)

Go to Registry editor in your SharePoint indexing server.

Navigate the following path within the registry editor:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Office Server\14.0\Search\Global\Gathering Manager

Find the ‘UserAgent‘ key and change to:

Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 7.0; Windows NT 6.1; Trident/4.0; SLCC2; .NET CLR 2.0.50727; .NET CLR 3.5.30729; .NET CLR 3.0.30729; Media Center PC 6.0; InfoPath.3; .NET4.0C; MS-RTC LM 8; Tablet PC 2.0)

A restart of the server is required!

A big thank you goes out to the author of this solution ssaz in the Microsoft forums.
