SharePoint 2010, Search service stuck on status “Error Stopping”

  1. Search service stuck on status “Error Stopping”:

It is disallowed to use the Stop at the services on server page. I think it tells you that you should use topology configuration for each search service application instead. Once the “Error Stopping” state is displayed you can clear it by using:

stsadm -o osearch -action start

As Thuan says, you can restart the OSearch14 service itself (SharePoint Server Search 14). From the command prompt, I use:

net stop osearch14  facilitate

In a normal environment, the process will restart by itself.

To STOP the search Service:

stsadm -o osearch -action stop
