SharePoint 2010 Search Administration Correlation Error when Accessing Content Sources

This occurred on a medium SharePoint 2010 web farm using FAST for SharePoint 2010. When clicking on the Content Sources I would get an error with a correlation id but no matching entry in any of the log files. I used the ULS log viewer to check real-time events that were being created and found the following entry:


This points to an error in the Gatherer service of SharePoint. I used Service Manager in Windows to stop the following services:

SharePoint Server Search 14
SharePoint Foundation Search V4

and then restarted them in the following order:

SharePoint Foundation Search V4
SharePoint Server Search 14

The errors disappeared from my ULS log viewer and I was able to access the search administration components again, in particular the content sources.
