The Search Service is currently offline in SharePoint 2010

In this post we will check the solution for "The Search Service is currently offline" error, which very ofter we got in SharePoint search. You can also check my last article on Branding the Search box in SharePoint 2010.

Also you can see an article on FAST Search Server 2010 SharePoint 2010.

If you got the error "The Search Service is currently offline" in SharePoint search. Then try following methods which may be useful to you.

In this method we need to run the Office SharePoint Server Search service. For this go to Start > Administrative Tools > Office SharePoint Server Search. If it is not running then run the service.

Try the below stsadm commands.
stsadm -o osearch -action stop

stsadm -o osearch -action start
And during this command if it prompts to deleted the SSP then select NO.

Hope these 2 solution will work.

This is actually a tricky error. Sometime professionals also stop the MOSS search service and recreating the service with a new database. But this is not a recommended solution.
