Sharepoint Online Issues while applying search configurations during Provisioning a site

Brass Contributor

I am facing the issue while applying the provisioning template to a site with Search Settings only. The issue does not occur all the time. Have anyone faced this issue earlier?

Could you please post your provisioning xml?

Sorry, I cannot post the xml. The issue is it does not happen all the time. It fails sometimes only.

I do recognize this behavior but never investigated the root-cause. So far when failing I consider the Search service to be in a temporary state ("busy with something" or maintenance) that causes this issue.


I understand you already have a dedicated Provisioning Template for Search Settings so depending on the way you apply your template you could maybe implement some sort of retry-mechanism in applying your template to work around this. 

Ok since it does not happen all the time i can confirm seeing this sometimes with a unstable internet connection or during update of office365

I am seeing the same error and it seems very random. We did put 5 retry but even after that sometime it fails.


Is there a way we can get detailed error log from ULS or something?
