Is it happening only for that one indexer OR all the indexers?

Are you running Indexer Cluster ? I have seen this type of issue (not remember exact issue ) and it was configuration issue in distsearch.conf, someone configured distsearch.conf however it was not require because our SH was pointing to Cluster Master.
