My FAST Search site did work then installing the SP FEB 2012 CU raises: The search request was unable to connect to the Search Service. WHY? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    My SharePoint 2010 Enterprise 3 server 3 tier farm returned search results from a separate FAST Search Server.

    Then I installed the Feb 2012 Cumulative Update for SharePoint and now when i run a search from the FAST search site i get this:

    The search request was unable to connect to the Search Service. 

    I only installed a CU - is FAST/SharePoint so flaky that the integration breaks when patching the farm?

    More to the point - what do you need to do for search results to be returned again from the FAST Search Server?


    Thanks,

  • You most likely forgot to run ".\psconfig.ps1 –action p". This is required after any CU or SP update, refer to http://technet.microsoft.com/library/hh285624.aspx#BKMK_InstallASoftwareUpdate
