I messed up a parameter value in my PowerShell script to create a Search application. It is partially created and trying to activate. [ Admin and Crawl databases created with associated registry entries, but query and proxy were not
created.] I see reference on the web for a CancelActivation method that can be used from VB or C#, but I have not been able to find anything in PowerShell to help. Attempts to delete the search application via the GUI or remove it with PowerShell
just sit there until the nightly recycle of the application pools cancels the process.
This is Search Server 2010 Express so all components are on the same server. I have been able to successfully create a second search application so the users have search functionality, but I need to be able to remove the incomplete one.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
Central Admin search management page says "did not finish loading" (and topology and crawl status just have the spiny spinning forever)
Event log entries occur about every minute:
Application Server Administration job failed for service instance Microsoft.Office.Server.Search.Administration.SearchServiceInstance (fba8ced3-8939-4463-8159-de4fea83a618).
