    Unanswered: How to disabel the Microsoft Search Service

    Hi everybody,

    I work with SQL Server 2000 SP2 in an Active/active Cluster.
    Two days ago, one the sql server fulltext resource of one node just failed suddenly.
    Now I am realizing that Search Engine Utility has not been used by any of my databases, so I would like do disable this service...
    Does anybody know how can I get rid of the Microsoft Search Service.
    I don't need this service active!
    In Service Manager the Microsoft Search is in an unkown state.
    In cluster Administrator the sql server full text resource is in a failed state.
    Do I need to delete the full text resource or is there any other way to disable the Search Service?
    Any help or advice will be very important to me...
    Thanks,
    Nadia

    Search service is a shared service by all SQL Server instances.

    Can you take off-line on SQL Server FullText resources from all SQL Server instances from cluster administrator?

    You shouldn't remove the search service even though you currently do not use it. Try take it off-line.

    Becuase your search service is in unknow status, I would move all cluster groups to the good node and restart the machine that search service is not function properly.

    Hi Allen_Cui

    Thank you for your reply...
    I have already tried to move all the groups to the good node and the result was:
    Microsoft Search is in "stopped" state in Service Manager... -> that's ok!
    SQL Server Full Text resource was in "failed" state in cluster Administrator... -> that's not ok!
    But before I try the manual failover I selected the option "Do not restart" in the properties of the failed Full Text Resource...
    My problem now is: I want to convert the state of the failed Full Text Resource to an offline state the is more pleasant to see...
    Do you have any idea?
    I will be waiting for your help...

    I would check the machine application/system logs to see any errors related FullText resource and search service.
