Hi there @user2, I’m not super familiar with this error but - is it possible that this model isn’t configured to be compatible with the Weaviate module?

Do you still get this error with other models that we know works with Weaviate?

Okay, I will try the documentation provided text2vec-huggingface using the all-MiniLM-L6-v2 model.

refer:text2vec-huggingface | Weaviate - vector database

still get this error:
update vector: failed with status: 400 error: Task not found for this model

Hi @user2

That error is from the Hugging Face side (not Weaviate), indicating that the model used doesn’t have the task (embedding/feature extraction) available. Which is odd, if the model is one that should allow this task.

Could you post your code as used? That might help us to debug.

Also, just noticed that you have a TRANFORMERS_MODEL environment variable. I don’t think that’ll have an effect. I don’t see in our docs either.

Did you find that reference somewhere?

Also, I will change the post category to “support”.
