SharePoint 2010 search service is failing, Event ID 6482

Recently our SharePoint server started throwing errors.  Did some investigation and found that it was the search service instance that was causing it.  Tried all sorts of things to get it to work but finally decided to just remove it and add a new search service.  Unfortunately, I was unable to completely remove the service.  It would just timeout after quite a while.  I was able to add a new search service so the users are happy as they can still search on the site.  I would still like to get this figured out as the server is throwing 4 different errors every few minutes.  Which I am sure is not helping the stability of the server or site.  Any  help would be appreciated.  Thanks.

Info about our SharePoint 2010 setup:
Stand alone server hosting both SQL 2010 and SharePoint 2010
Server is a VM with 2008 R2 on it
Errors that we are seeing, in order as they come:
Could not access the Search database. A generic error occurred while trying to access the database to obtain the schema version info.

Try delete old search service application using powershell / stsadm.

Following below referenced articles for help - 

I hope it helps.

Thanks for the quick response.  I have tried both of these already.  The powershell command timed out like when I used Central Admin and the stsadmin comes back almost immediately with a "Command Line Error".  I apologize, I should have mentioned this in my original post.  Any other suggestions?  


Please check SharePoint Logs to find exact reason for Powershell timout or stsadm 'Command Line Error'.

Here are the errors I am receiving when using stsadm:

On a side note, I copied the vm into dev for testing last night.  This morning, I decided to try the stsadm on it again.  It worked flawlessly.  Tried it again on production and got the same error as above.  

Any ideas?


Error displayed in the log provided by you is a generic exception and not related to errors you are getting. Please run the command and get the logs at that specific point of time based on the correlation id.


When I run the stsadm command to remove the object, I can't find anything in the log that has the ID of the object I am trying to remove.  Is there another way I can find the info you are requesting?  Thanks.

Microsoft was the only way to go on this one.  At least they didn't charge me as it only took a few minutes to fix.  Nice.
