Hi Guys,

We've been having a couple of issues with SharePoint 2010 and Searches / Crawls of the Site collection.
Our previous issue detailed here; http://www.experts-exchange.com/OS/Microsoft_Operating_Systems/Server/MS-SharePoint/Q_28305250.html#a39685108 

Current setup is;
Farm Site - SharePoint 2010 SP1 on Server 2008 R2 SP1
DB Server - Server 2008 R2 SP1 and SQL 2008 R2 SP1

Our current issue is as follows;
Under Central Admin, Search Administration we are receiving query server not responding for the Propagation status.

As follows;
Crawl status The search application 'Search Service Application' on server INTRANET did not finish loading. View the event logs on the affected server for more information.
Background activity The search application 'Search Service Application' on server INTRANET did not finish loading. View the event logs on the affected server for more information.
Recent crawl rate 0.00 items per second
Searchable items 0
Recent query rate  0.00 queries per minute
Propagation status Query server not responding

Event Viewer logs - Application - Event ID 6398, Task Category 'Timer'

Steps so far;
Resetting the Index on the Site
Stopping and starting the current crawl
Checked permissions on the Applications folder
Rebooted both the SQL and the SharePoint server

The is where we are currently at with our investigations and we are seeking further help on this?

Out of curiosity, what happens if you create a second search application?  Does it have the same issue?

I have created a new Search Service Application, and edited the Content Source that gets created.
Currently running a full crawl of the site.
Will this vary in time to complete depending on the size of the site?
