I recently tried to start a full crawl after my colleague mentioned that some of the files are not visible in the search.
Normally the crawler start full crawl every week. so i manually tried to start a full crawl. but eventually i come up with error message saying "Could not access the search service configuration database".
While looking on the content source in search administration area (Shared Services Administration: SharedServices1 > Search Administration > Content sources)i found that its being crawling for about 333 hours that's about 14 days.
So, i though to stop the crawler and start again. but it didn't seems to be stopping from crawling.
Does anyone have any idea to solve this issue... thanks in advance.
