Server roles RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am trying to move index role from server to another, say server1 is the current one and server2 is the new one. I can successfully stop it from server1, but when I start it for server2 then it is saying "error starting" and hanging there ... and I can see following two things in event log: Also not too sure what it is looking for.

    Any idea how to resolve this?

    An attempt to start/stop instance  of service Windows SharePoint Services Help Search on server Server2 did not succeed.  Re-run the action via UI or command line on the specified server. Additional information is below. The system cannot find the file specified. 

    Error executing service instance (un)provisioning job.  Service instance: "Windows SharePoint Services Search" (id "7645c1e7-d296-4197-bd58-d3210dec8dbc) "The system cannot find the file specified.  ""
