WSS Search database RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am using Sharepoint WSS. I was testing a restore on the same server and for some reason it has changed the search database to the test restore search database(WSS_Search_Tester). But it needs to be WSS_Search_Production, I have gone to the 'Services on Search Service setting' configure page, but the database name is grey.

  • Please stop the Windows SharePoint Services Search

     - Open the SharePoint Central Administration
     - Select the Operations tab and then select Services on Server from under the Topology and Services

     - select Windows SharePoint Services Search and click on 'Stop'

     - You will then receive a message  that the index files will be deleted. Press OK to continue

    Search service will stop, now you can reconfigure search service to update with new DB name

     - Click on hyperlink 'Windows SharePoint Services Search'

     - fill all the required details and Press the OK button to create the Search database and start the SharePoint Search Service
     - Start Full Crawl ro reindex the content

    Thanks, ShankarSingh
