I ran the script from Listing Services on SharePoint Farm by Server using PowerShell

Which produced the following output:

Name                                                          Value

Can anyone confirm that we are running the same services on both servers in the Sharepoint farm?

Most important, why is SERVER_1 and SERVER_2 listed TWICE for the Value of SharePoint Server Search

When I check Central Admin, I only see ONE search service configured:

The Search Service Topology only shows SERVER_1:

Your PowerShell script is showing Service Instances. Your screenshot shows the Service Application. Search can run on multiple servers in the farm with a single Search Service Application. If you Manage the SSA, you can see which servers are part of the Search Topology. It is, of course, possible to start the SharePoint Server Search service without having added it to the Search topology.

  • The Search Service topology only shows SERVER_1. If SERVER_1 is the only server in the Search topology what would this imply? – jes516 Mar 20 '17 at 16:14
  • It would imply that the Search Service instance may be stopped on SERVER_2. – Trevor Seward Mar 20 '17 at 16:29
  • That is what I don't understand. Because the output from the script shows there are 2 search service instances per server running: SharePoint Server Search SERVER_1 - SERVER_1 - SERVER_2 - SERVER_2 – jes516 Mar 20 '17 at 16:34
  • Did you double-check the UI? There is only one Search Service Instance per server. Each SSI can run multiple SSAs. – Trevor Seward Mar 20 '17 at 16:34
