FST-01: Admin error occurred during loading of keyword data. The keyword cache may be stale. Exception Message:Failed to communicate with the WCF service.
During one of our deployments of FAST Search (VMware virtual environment) we got the above error repeatedly on the FAST Search Node.
The resolution to this error was to create the local group FASTSearchKeywordAdministrators (It is not necessary to add any users at this time) on the FAST Search Node (FST-01 in our case) and stop and start the FAST Search service by running the following commands from the PS command prompt:
PS C:\FASTSearch\bin>nctrl stop
NOTE: Wait for 1 to 2 minutes for the FAST Search service to stop completely.
PS C:\FASTSearch\bin>nctrl start
The error in the FAST Search event logs should now be gone.
