I have been fighting issues with SharePoint Search getting invalid uid and passwords when rebooting a server.
I have checked and the account I am using for SharePoint search has logon as service rights. I also tried updating the account password in SharePoint under managed accounts and that didnt make it happy either. I have checked in AD and the account is set to never expire password.
I can start the service manually by typing in the password in the windows service though.
The password also hasn't been changed for this account.
Thanks for any help that anyone can give on this, I have looked at other articles and I have tried all of the troubleshooting steps that I saw but unfortunately I am still faced with the same problem each time my Crawl or WFE Server is rebooted.
are you using default web service application pool for all services with different accounts? if yes then create new search service application with new application pool. otherwise create new service account in AD- first register it in Managed account and then go to CA- security- service account - select search service and provide new account. now restart search service and then verify new account in windows services -sharepoint server search 14 and application pool account.
