After Index Profile upload search stops working

Symptom

After updating the index profile and uploading it to ESP with the bliss command search no longer works and the following error is seen in the qrserver.log:

WARNING qrserver 15100 systemmsg Error received while searching tcp/<hostname>:15700. Error: [2] 2'Existing attribute vector name expected at...

Cause

This is caused when the user forces a Hot Update via the bliss command when a Cold Update is needed.  This results in the configuration files that search uses to no longer match the data that was indexed.    

Resolution

To resolve this issue, perform a Cold Update and then re-feed all the previously indexed content. This will purge the existing content in the index that no longer matches the new configuration files.  The new content will then match the configuration files which will cause search to work properly and the warning message will no longer be seen.
