Hi Guys,

We have a SharePoint 2010 environment with a SQL server back end on a separate server.

When I try and stop the current SharePoint Crawl in Central Administration : Search Service Application: Manage Content Sources it doesn't appear to do anything, we dont even receive an error code.

I have created a PS1 script that does the following;

Get-SPEnterpriseSearchCrawlContentSource -SearchApplication "Search Service Application" | ForEach-Object {
    if ($_.CrawlStatus -ne "Idle")
    {
        Write-Host "Stopping currently running crawl for content source $($_.Name)..."
        $_.StopCrawl()
       
        do { Start-Sleep -Seconds 1 }
        while ($_.CrawlStatus -ne "Idle")
    }
   
    Write-Host "Starting full crawl for content source $($_.Name)..."
    $_.StartFullCrawl()
}

When i run it, it reports a status of;
Stopping currently running crawl for content source Local SharePoint Sites... and doesnt do anything else after that.

Any Help and assistance on this would be greatly appreciated as its driving me mad not being able to stop the current crawl.

Cheers

Try this instead:
Add-PSSnapin Microsoft.SharePoint.PowerShell 
$SSA = Get-SPEnterpriseSearchServiceApplication -Identity "Search Service Application" 
$ContentSource = $SSA | Get-SPEnterpriseSearchCrawlContentSource -Identity "Local Sharepoint sites" 
Write-Host $ContentSource.CrawlState 
if (($ContentSource.CrawlStatus  -eq "CrawlingIncremental" ) -or ($ContentSource.CrawlStatus  -eq "CrawlingFull" )) 
{ 
	#$ContentSource.PauseCrawl() 
	$ContentSource.StopCrawl()
	Write-Host "Stopping the current Crawl" 
} 
Write-host $ContentSource.CrawlState

Thanks for that...
Now a further issue but guess I'm going to have to create a new ticket for this...

Just on the off chance though,

We are now getting 'Query Server not responding' when checking under the following location - Central Administration > Manage Service Applications > Shares Services-Search Service:Search Administration.

Have checked the permissions on the Share and that appears to all be ok, have reset the index from inside of the Central Admin, but still receiving 'Query server not responding'.

Any further help would be greatly appreciated??

Regards

I'll give your other question a shot:

When you checked permissions, did you make sure the WSS_WPG user has read & modify rights?  You can also give 'everyone' permission to make sure then dial it back.

After verifying permissions, stop and restart the query service:

$SearchApp = Get-SPEnterpriseSearchServiceApplication -identity "Search Service Application"

$SearchApp | Get-SPEnterpriseSearchQueryTopology | Get-SPEnterpriseSearchQueryComponent | Where-Object {$_.ServerName -eq 'SERVERNAME'}  | Restart-SPEnterpriseSearchQueryComponent


If it's any more in depth than this, I'd open up another question so more experts can participate.
