New MinRole SharePoint 2019 farm, new SSA created with Central Admin or Powershell (tried both ways and got the same error described in this question). Using Powershell, I created a clone of the active topology and after I created all its components and running
$clone.Activate() I get the following error:
Exception calling "Activate" with "0" argument(s): "Topology activation job died prematurely, the topology already is in Activating state." At line:1 char:1 $clone.Activate() + CategoryInfo : NotSpecified: (:) , MethodInvocationException + FullyQualifiedErrorId : SearchTopologyActivationException
I am logged as the farm account on the Server with MinRole: Application with Search and running Powershell ISE as Admin.
I already recreated from scratch a new SSA created with Central Admin and this one I created it with Powershell, but getting the same error.
$clone.State = Activating and has been stuck in that state since yesterday.
noderunner.exe is located at D:\Microsoft Office Servers\16.0\Search\Runtime\1.0
Any ideas about how can I resolve this error?
