Moving SharePoint 2010 Search Service

Hello,

We currently have a SharePoint 2010 farm that we need to move to new equipment. Our current server operating system has been corrupted, so we need to move it.

We are building a new SharePoint farm on new equipment and will be migrating our current content to this new farm. The server has been in use for a few years and has a substantial amount of content in terms of Word documents and the like.

Is there any reason not to set up a new search service application on the new farm? Or would it be better, or is it even possible, to use the existing search service databases?

Thank You.

There's no problem using a new search service. The first full crawl will build the search index and you'll be in as good shape as you were before. Search is separated from the content itself, so no issues.

Am I understanding your concerns correctly?
