SharePoint 2010 Search Content Sources Wont start

    Question

  • Hi, 

    i Have a development/demo SharePoint Server and cant get the search to work.

    If i goto: Manage Service Applications -> Search Service Application -> Manage -> Content Sources

    the Local Sharepoint site status is Starting.

    i Have done a IIS reset, restarted the "SharePoint Server seach 14"service.

    There is a "SharePoint Foundation Search v4" which is disabled. Tried to start it but it wont.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks

  • Ok, this is solved:

    The search DB was not responding.

    When i looked under the DB upgrade status it showed that the DB required an upgrade.

    i Ran the config wizard which upgraded it and it started to work.
