SharePoint 2013 Preview : How to fix issue in Search Service Application?
Recently I've face some issues while creating Search Service Application in SharePoint 2013 Preview.
After creation Search Service Application, search topology displays the following message: "Unable to retrieve topology component health states. This may be because the admin component is not up and running." When I started full crawl results, it got struck in "Starting".
ULS log shows following information:
Application Server Administration job failed for service instance Microsoft.Office.Server.Search.Administration.SearchServiceInstance
Failed to connect to system manager. SystemManagerLocations: net.tcp://<<some location>>
Technical Support Details: System.InvalidOperationException: Failed to connect to system manager. SystemManagerLocations: net.tcp://<<some location>> ---> System.ServiceModel.EndpointNotFoundException: There was no endpoint listening at net.tcp://sp13beta/E0C7FF/AdminComponent1/Management/NodeController that could accept the message. This is often caused by an incorrect address or SOAP action. See InnerException, if present, for more details.
Reason behind the issue: Operation system prevents few responsible Dlls for Admin component (for search service application) to load.
Fix: Install this KB 2567680 and reboot the system.
NOTE: Rest of the prerequisites are already listed here.
