SharePoint 2010 Search Error: The Search Request was unable to connect to Search Service.

If incase you see below while searching on SharePoint Portal, then you can follow the solution as below:


Then I logged on the server remotely and check the SharePoint Service in the Start –> Programs –> Administrative Tools –> Services. The name of the service was ” SharePoint Server Search 14″, i checked and its status was “Stopped”, I started the service and my search was functioning perfect.




At times when we reboot our SharePoint Server, then the manual services needs to be started manually, so it is better recommended to put critical services as Automatic.
