Description

This cmdlet stops an instance of a search service.

Before you can stop a search service instance, you must remove all search topology components on the associated server from the active topology. This can be done in three ways:

  • Removing components from the search topology
  • Moving components to another server. For more information, see .
  • Removing the search service application. For more information, see Remove-SPEnterpriseSearchServiceApplication

Examples

------------------EXAMPLE------------------

C:\PS>Get-SPEnterpriseSearchServiceInstance -Local | Stop-SPEnterpriseSearchServiceInstance

This example stops the local search service instance.

Required Parameters

-Identity

Specifies the shared search service instance to stop.

The type must be a valid GUID, in the form 12345678-90ab-cdef-1234-567890bcdefgh; a valid name of a query server (for example, MyQueryServer); or an instance of a valid SearchServiceInstance object.

Type:SearchServiceInstancePipeBind

Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:True (ByValue)
Accept wildcard characters:False

Optional Parameters

-AssignmentCollection

Manages objects for the purpose of proper disposal. Use of objects, such as SPWeb or SPSite, can use large amounts of memory and use of these objects in Windows PowerShell scripts requires proper memory management. Using the SPAssignment object, you can assign objects to a variable and dispose of the objects after they are needed to free up memory. When SPWeb, SPSite, or SPSiteAdministration objects are used, the objects are automatically disposed of if an assignment collection or the Global parameter is not used.

When the Global parameter is used, all objects are contained in the global store. If objects are not immediately used, or disposed of by using the Stop-SPAssignment command, an out-of-memory scenario can occur.
