I installed SP2 on my MOSS 2007 Farm last weekend and search is not starting now. When i try to start using
stsadm -o osearch -action start -role IndexQuery -farmcontactemail email@example.com -farmperformancelevel Maximum -farmserviceaccount <userAccount> -farmservicepassword <Password> -defaultindexlocation D:\Sharepoint_Idx -ssp SharedServicesDynegy
I get the following error.
'start' action failed. Additional information: Time out has expired and the operation has not been completed.
Starting the office search service takes me to the error page with the following message.
An unhandled exception occurred in the user interface.Exception Information: Time out has expired and the operation has not been completed.
Troubleshoot issues with Windows SharePoint Services.
Search was working properly before the Service Pack 2 install.
