The Primary Microsoft Content Management Server Entry Point can not be found

I was trying to set up a toplevel CMS channel to be accessed as a root URL and half way I wanted to start over. So I deleted it. Next time I launch SCA I got:

"The Primary Microsoft Content Management Server Entry Point can not be found"

Fortunately this KB article deals witht he problem : http://www.kbalertz.com/kb_Q328449.aspx

The steps needed were :
1. Recreate the website in IIS
2. Manually create the virtual directories NR (Points to
C:\Program Files\Microsoft Content Management Server\Server\IIS_NR

3. Recreate exeres, and ReadonlyRes inside this folder
4. To figure out the IIS Instance IDs, run adsutil.vbs ENUM_ALL /P
5. Stick this into your registry as described in the KB

Sharepoint Error: "cannot load content index"

I started this blog hoping to document what I found about running Sharepoint and CMS and connecting them with a pipeline. So today I got this error in the event log:

The gatherer files from the previous checkpoint cannot be restored, and this action cannot be completed. The gatherer will attempt to restore the files again. If the problem persists, restart the service, free system resources or verify that your hardware is working properly.

This entry deals with it:

however it wont let you remove the index server, while the jobserver is pointing to the same site(in a single server topology). So you remove the job server first and then remove index server. And then everything is happy.
