Help Needed: SharePoint Error While Crawling LOB Contents – HTTP Status 401 Unauthorized

Copper Contributor

Hi everyone,


I'm stuck with an error in SharePoint and need some help. When I try to crawl content, I get this error:


Error while crawling LOB contents. Microsoft.BusinessData.Infrastructure.BdcException: The shim execution failed unexpectedly - System.Net.WebException: The request failed with HTTP status 401: Unauthorized. 




Here's what I've tried:

  • Checked permissions in Business Data Connectivity.
  • Set application settings to use default credentials.
  • Looked into possible network/firewall issues.
  • Searched SharePoint logs for more info.

But nothing's worked. Does anyone know how to fix this?


Thanks a lot!
