The status of my current crawls is at "completing" and has been apparently for days now (typical crawl duration is 2-4 min). I have both stopped and restarted the SharePoint Search Host Controller and SharePoint Server Search 16 services on both application servers with no luck. I am now at a point that I will need to reboot these app servers.
My questions are this ... 1. Can I just reboot the two application servers without performing a full reboot of the farm? 2. What is the impact for the end user (yes, we have load balancing) if I reboot one then upon completion of that one, reboot the other?
