We have two search service applications - one that searches our local SharePoint sites and another that searches through a fileshare. I would like for our enterprise search center to only search for files from the fileshare; however, it seems to be also searching our local SharePoint sites (which I assume it's getting from the other search service application because the other one is never set to crawl the local sites).

How can I force the search center to only show results from the search service application that crawls the fileshare?


Look at the Web Application Service Application Connections. The sites under that web app will use the Search Service App that is selected in the Service Application Connections.
