Issue with Sharepoint 2013 Install

Hello all,

     We have a Sharepoint 2013 Server that was loaded and setup but never really finished.  I've been tasked to try to get the server online so we can begin using it.  It looks like most aspects of the sites are working.  I can go to the different department pages and that seems to work.  I do notice that if I do a search using the Search This Site I will receive an error "Sorry someting went wrong."  In the details it states

The search request was unable to connect to the Search Service.

   I also see 4 errors on the server itself that seem to happen every hour.  Not sure if this is causing the search issue.  

Error ID 4 Microsoft Windows Security Kerberos (The Kerberos client received a KRB_AP_ERR_MODIFIED error from the server sservername$. The target name used was )

Error ID 1026 .Net RuntimeApplication: DistributedCacheService.exe

Framework Version: v4.0.30319
Description: The process was terminated due to an unhandled exception.
Exception Info: Microsoft.ApplicationServer.Caching.DataCacheException


Error ID 1000 Application Error

Faulting application name: DistributedCacheService.exe, version: 1.0.4632.0, time stamp: 0x4eafeccf
Faulting module name: KERNELBASE.dll, version: 6.3.9600.17278, time stamp: 0x53eebf2e
Exception code: 0xe0434352

Faulting process id: 0x159c
Faulting application start time: 0x01cfe7f1d1c93c87
Error ID 7034 Microsoft Windows Service Control Manager

Any assistance in getting the search function working and sorting out these errors would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks

Have you configured search service application ? Let me know if its SP2013 standard, enterprise or foundation ?
If you can navigate to central admin > manage service applications > do you see a search service application ?
Also ensure whether the Search service is running on manage services on server in central admin itself.

Ok I went to Central Admin > Manage Service Applications and I don't see the search service listed.  I only saw Application Discovery and Security Token Service.

I went to the Manage Services and and the SharePoint Server Search is Stopped.  Search Host Controller Service and Search Query and Site Settings Service is Started.  

It looks like it's Sharepoint Server with Standard Client Access

Alright it means its not configured. Start the service from manage services . So go to manage service application and create a search service application.
Refer this article to configure it. you will find a section in it to configure .

Thanks. I think I'm close but I get in an error when I try to create the Service Application.  It's a long error but here is the beginning.  The SQL Database is on another server.  

Errors were encountered during the configuration of the Search Service Application.      
System.Data.SqlClient.SqlException (0x80131904): CREATE DATABASE permission denied in database 'master'. at System.Data.SqlClient.SqlConnection.OnError(SqlException exception, Boolean breakConnection, Action`1 wrapCloseInAction)

Ok I sorted that getting the Search App setup.  Issue with rights on the SQL server database.  Now when I do a search I get a standard message Nothing here matches your search.  The site only has 1 department page with about 15 documents.  So I tried a search using the names of those documents and don't receive any results.  Not sure if the search function is searching everything.
