  •  Of couse, when I try a search, I get 

    The search request was unable to connect to the Search Service

    I found this post:

    Says to install and run the indexing service but I'm running Server 2008 and I don't get an Indexing Service.

    I get an Indexing Options icon in Control Panel and it just tells me that indexing is not running.

    Search worked before so I don't know what I did to break it.

  • I think fixed this for now.  I went to the Services on Server page and clicked on the Office Server Search link that opened the Configure Office SharePoint Server Search Service Settings on server <my server> page.

    I entered the password for my search service and clicked OK.  Then I stopped and started the Search service in the Services mmc.

    That ended up giving me an Application Log entry that said Successfully imported the application configuration snapshot into the registry.

    Now, I search the registry and I find the application under HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Office Server\12.0\Search\Applications\<My Search App GUID>

    I restart IIS and now, I'm getting search results.

    I'll have to see if it stays fixed.
