I refer to this article to rename Search Service Application Databases. The Administration, Analytics Reporting and Crawl databases are successful but the Links Store databases no work,

Set-SPEnterpriseSearchLinksDatabase : The search application ‘f4ffa287-db94-479e-82aa-88689eec0e4f’ on server xxxx did not finish loading. View the event logs on the affected server for more information

I have tried: Get-SPDatabase | Where{$_.Exists -eq $false}

Get-SPDatabase | Where{$_.Exists -eq $false} | ForEach {$_.Delete()}

PSConfig.exe -cmd upgrade -inplace b2b -force -cmd applicationcontent -install -cmd installfeatures

I still can not rename the Links Store databases.

  • Is there anything listed in the SharePoint log or the event log to provide more detail? – Andy Dawson Aug 26 '16 at 20:16
