Posts Tagged ‘Search Service Application’


This error popped up when I changed my service account for Search Service & the Search Host Controller Service as these services were using the farm admin account. Below are some of the solutions which provided were,

  • Removing the extra space at the end of ‘PSModulePath’ – This didn’t work for me
  • Adding proper permissions in the database – Which is perfectly fine already
  • Repair SharePoint under Control Panel – This is not going to be a good option

The solution was to provision the WSS usage application proxy. Use the below command to do the same.

$UP = Get-SPServiceApplicationProxy | where {$_.TypeName -like "Usage*"}
$UP.Provision()
