Hi,

 

I have been finding the following log entries inside the OS X Console.app. They look like this:

10/5/12 11:16:13.846 PM mdwrite[196]: [ERROR] [0.000s] com.apple. UBItemStatusNotification.c:805 _do_UBItemStatusNotificationRegisterURLs() can't find realpath for "/Users/Michael/Library/Mobile Documents/com~apple~system~spotlight/mdlabels", was blocked at "/Users/Michael/Library/Mobile Documents": 2 (No such file or directory)

10/5/12 11:16:13.847 PM mdwrite[196]: [ERROR] [0.001s] com.apple. UBItemStatusNotification.c:805 _do_UBItemStatusNotificationRegisterURLs() can't find realpath for "/Users/Michael/Library/Mobile Documents/com~apple~system~spotlight/mdlabels", was blocked at "/Users/Michael/Library/Mobile Documents": 2 (No such file or directory)

 

I am wondering if these have to do with the Spotlight index and second if there is a way to get rid of these messages?

 

Thanks for your time...

    Yes, those messages were generated by Spotlight. They may or may not be indicative of a problem. If you are having any noticeable problems with Spotlight, force it to re-index by adding your hard drive to Spotlight's privacy list, and then removing it.

     

    If you're not having any noticeable Spotlight problems, just leave it alone. Trolling the logs for problems, when no problems otherwise exist, is generally a waste of time.

    Hello Király,

     

    I tried your suggestion of rebuilding the spotlight index to see if that helped, however I am still getting those messages in Cosole. I am able to reproduce the problems always so I decided to file a bug report with Apple to see if they fix this issue.

     

    Thanks for your assistance!

    Try making the folder that can't be found. You can open Terminal and type

    mkdir ~/Library/Mobile\ Documents

     

    Or go the the folder by opening finder, clicking "Go" in the menu bar, hold the Option key and click the Library button. Cmd-click, make New Folder and name it Mobile Documents.

     

    I've been having this error pop up for a while and try searching before with no results. Today just so happened to turn up this blog outlining this painfully obvious possible solution. (If the folder can't be found, make it?)
