I am trying to consume with my Sharepoint development server a Search Service Application from another Sharepoint farm.
I have followed the steps from this blog post, redone it three times, always the same result:
I can't select the desired service application!
I tried as provider SP2013 and SP2010 too, but I can't connect to either of them. My colleagues with their development servers can consume services from the exact same farms, so I am assuming it's something wrong with the configuration of my server. I couldn't find anything (significant) in the ULS or the EventViewer of either the provider or the consumer farm.
What I am looking for is either:
- Somebody with the exact same experience and a solution for it
- Debugging tips for finding the cause.
