I have been troubleshooting an issue with the Search Service Application in our SharePoint 2013 environment, and not having much luck with finding a solution. I'm trying to avoid rebuilding the SSA if at all possible.

these are the errors:
    Search application 'a8af725e-5b01-4461-93c7-b47f45fc33ce-crawl-0' 
    appears to be malfunctioning and will be reinitialized.

    Gatherer\CSS connector failed to connect to CSS 
Our Server Configuration:

2 WFE's (4 CPU/16gb RAM)

1 Search/Application (Another VM is being provisioned for handling the Search Role)
 (4 CPU/16gb RAM)

1 SQL Server (4 CPU/16gb RAM)
