Have just installed an 8 Server Sp2016 Farm with MinRoles (2 each) but after creating the Search Service App the Topology Overview in Central Admin only shows one of them.

enter image description here

Do I have to add the second one manually via PowerShell like in SP13? Will the second one (es4) get any work? Dont really get why it wouldnt auto-deploy on both Servers which got "Search" as MinRole.

Cheers & Thanks


You still have to provision the search service topology to those servers. Each of the 6 search service application components has to be allocated by you through PowerShell as the admin.
