I have a problem with all Search Service Applications on my server. Every search application has Administrative status:

"The search service is not able to connect to the machine that hosts the administration component. Verify that the administration component '{GUID}' in search application '{Search Service Application Name}' is in a good state and try again."

I've tried to resolve this problem by solution presented in post: The search service is not able to connect to the machine that hosts the administration component

I've also tried to reset timer job. Moreover, I've tried to create new Search application, but when I was trying to Active new topology i got the same error.

Update: I created a new Search Service Application through the Central Administration. The fresh Search Service Application still has the same Administrative error status.

I also found out that, even if I create new topology with new components, the SPEnterpriseSearchServiceInstance is empty (status is "Online", but it has 0 components). Search Administration

Okay, I solved the problem. I used a SharePoint Repair tool (In "Program and Features" -> "Microsoft SharePoint Server 2013" -> "Change" -> "Repair"). Previous search service applications are working now.
