Shadow code indexing jobs after upgrading to TFS 2017.2

Just a quick one – if you remove the Search Server before upgrading to TFS 2017.2, you might see failing Git_RepositoryCodeIndexing or TFVC_RepositoryCodeIndexing jobs raising a Microsoft.VisualStudio.Services.Search.Common.FeederException: Lots of files rejected by Elasticsearch, failing this job error.

The reason why this happens is because the extension is automatically enabled on the collections, triggering these jobs.

So check your extensions after the upgrade Smile

  1. Hi Matt, we are getting a lot of job failures for the TFVC_RepositoryCodeIndexing job since upgrading to 2017.2. We had the Code Search server up and running before the upgrade however so I presumed it would upgrade this component/extension successfully.

    Have you any suggestions how to fix this type of error?
