Trouble installing service applications RRS feed

  • Question

  • I've installed SP 2010 a gazillion times have lots of trouble installing and configuring the search service.

    I have three VMs configured with 4 cpus and 8 GB ram each.  One is the application server which will host most of the service apps and the others will be NLB FEs.  They are running Win08 R2 and connecting to a similar pair of VMs running SQL 08 R2.

    I created a search service app which took over an hour.  I then moved the query component to one of the front ends which took about 7 min.  When I try to create a mirror on the opposite FE, I get the below error.  I've uninstalled/reinstalled and always end up getting a similar error somewhere.  I'm using the article http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ee805948.aspx to guide my install.

    There doesn't appear to be any serious errors in the web server.  The app server has one that says, "Site 2 has no root application defined, so the site will be ignored." which I believe is a result of my last uninstall.  The FE with the query component has a warning (ID 5009) that says, "A process serving application pool 'a8f6eb3a31fa4e93b4af49db85235c70' terminated unexpectedly. The process id was '3796'. The process exit code was '0xfffffffe'."  Which is a little weird because there is no app pool with that guid (again, maybe from a previous life).  There are no errors on the other FE or in SQL server.

    How do I troubleshoot?

    Thanks, bob
