My Sharepoint world experience notes on day to day basis…..

The search service is not able to connect to the machine that hosts the administration component – SharePoint 2010 Search Service Application Error

Posted by fillzephyr on December 12, 2010


Error:

System Status Crawl status The search service is not able to connect to the machine that hosts the administration component. Verify that the administration component ‘xxxx-xxxxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx in search application ‘Search Service Application’ is in a good state and try again.

Resolution:

Go to manage Service Application Page As shown below

Hover over the Enterprise Search Service. Go to the properties as shown below.

It opens up the page shown below. Please verify if the application pool used is SharePoint web Service Account.

If it used the application pool SharePoint web Service Account then change to other application pool from drop down as shown below.

Once you change hit OK.

It will take some time and it shows up the successful of the creation of theSearch Service Application.

Or

You can try this method by creating a new app pool. ( I had tried this after doing the above step but I don’t know what would be the outcome if you do it straight away)

Create a new app Pool

AppPool Name: SPSearch_Ent

Search Service Account: DomainName\SPSearch1

Hit Ok

Once its done successfully it will shows the above screen.

Hope this will helps.

Thanks

    Its better you delete the search service application and try to recreate it using the CA.
    Also try to iis reset ma be that will trigger the search service application.
