Error:
A server-side seed operation has failed. Error: Content indexing operation failed with the following message: The seeding operation encountered an error while trying to contact the search service.

Specific RPC error message: Error 0x6d9 (There are no more endpoints available from the endpoint mapper) from cli_PauseIndexing [Database: MBDB01, Server: ECS-EX2.evo.local]

1. Restart the MSExchange Search service on the node which has the active database.

I rebooted the 2nd Exchange server, and now it just shows up as "Healthy".

Is it really health? How do I check?
