I'm unable to remove the "Search Service Application" and I'm open to any ideas.
This is what I've tried so far (Unsuccessfully):
- Delete via Central Admin
- Delete via PowerShell
Remove-SPServiceApplication <GUID of the service> -RemoveData
STSADM.EXE -o deleteconfigurationobject -id <GUID of the service>
Here's the ULS log message from attempting the above:
Event ID: 3355
Cannot connect to SQL Server. "DBNAME" not found. Additional error information from SQL Server is included below. Timeout expired. The timeout period elapsed prior to completion of the operation or the server is not responding.
