I have Windows server 2008, SP2010 as one farm. I successfully configured the search service but the search topology is keep loading and annoying with the same error:- Please read below for more details:
Application Management-->Service Applications-->Manage service application. Once i click on Manage service application i can view the list of services, and am selecting Search Service Application I can view System Status, Crawl History with no items and my Search Application Topology is keep Loading.
On my left side, under Crawling all the following links "Content Sources" "Crawl Rules" "Crawl Log" "Serve Name Mappings" "Host distribution rules" "File Types" are all throwing the same below error:-
System.InvalidOperationException: The search service is not able to connect to the machine that hosts the administration component.
