After migrating a SSA in a SP2016 farm from a production environment into a dev one by moving the databases, the SSA has taken the topology from production which has incorrect servers and means that most of the components have been degraded or unknown.

When I try to set up a new topology and activate it, I can't activate it because the admin component is down. I can't seem do much to the service because of this admin component.

Can any help to resolve this?

Name - State

IndexComponent1 - Degraded
Cell:IndexComponent1-SP08321bdb0e10I.1.0 - Degraded
Partition:0 - Degraded
AdminComponent1 - Degraded

CrawlComponent1 - Active
CrawlComponent0 - Active

  • How you have migrated the contents? by detach attach method? If so whether all other site collections restored, working fine?. I am guessing something wrong happened during migration or restoration. – John Zachariah Nov 5 '17 at 4:35
