Windows Search on RDS with FSlogix.

Hi. We use Terminal Server and FS Logix. Windows Server 2019.

We do not use Outlook caching(Office 2019 pro)

It is written here that the index mode can lead to performance degradation: https://www.amorales.org/2019/11/deploying-fslogix-profile-containers.html


I also found a lot of recommendations here: https://virtualwarlock.net/how-to-install-the-fslogix-apps-agent/#FSLogix_Apps_agent_post-install_modifications

  • Search service is disabled by default. Should I turn it on?
    Am I going to have a performance problem? What should I do?

  • Or I will ask the question differently. Should I use this service or is it unnecessary with FSlogix?

  • If you need to enable, what settings are required?

HI 47451047,

1.Search service is disabled by default. Should I turn it on?

"FSLogix search functionality is not compatible with Server 2019, Windows 10 multi-session, and subsequent multi-session operating systems with enhanced native search capabilities"
From this, it seems the answer is no.

2.Am I going to have a performance problem? What should I do?

"Reindexing has significant impact on CPU when a user logs on. Typically, Search is disabled in environments where users roam between computers to avoid CPU impact."

3."Should I use this service or is it unnecessary with Fslogix ?"
We can keep disabling search service, using Fslogix search functionality for Single-user roaming search or Multi-user roaming search.

There is a document for your reference.

After turning on the search service, the terminal server services began to turn off after a day.

I was getting a lot of errors

Timeout (30,000 ms) while waiting for a transaction from the "SystemEventsBroker" service.
Timeout (30,000 ms) while waiting for a transaction from the "BrokerInfrastructure" service.
Timeout (30,000 ms) while waiting for a transaction from the "DcomLaunch" service.

Can't figure out what the problem is.




After disabling the search service, the terminal server works stably, without errors.
