Unanswered: How to disabel the Microsoft Search Service
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...
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...
