I've been trying to use this PS code, to set up my new Search service application.

But I'm failing at activating the SearchTopology

When $SearchTopology.Activate() runs it returns the following after like 3-5 min:

Activating new topology
Exception calling "Activate" with "0" argument(s): "Topology activation failed. "
At line:56 char:1
+ $SearchTopology.Activate()
+ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    + CategoryInfo          : NotSpecified: (:) [], MethodInvocationException
    + FullyQualifiedErrorId : SearchTopologyActivationException

Do anyone have any idea how i can fix this problem?


If I write $SearchTopology in the PS, I get the following

TopologyId     : 5028dc75-69ac-412d-bd90-8eca44ea5716
CreationDate   : 24-08-2017 08:57:15
State          : Inactive
ComponentCount : 6

Don't know if it's any help but.
