The following conditions are currently affecting index propagation to this server for search service application 'Search Service Application':
1. Query 0, catalog Main: failing to copy index files from crawl component 0 for 1490 minutes. Access is denied. 0x80070005
2. Query 0 is not being automatically disabled because the minimum number of ready query components per partition is 2


  • Please try to disconnect the query server from the search topology
  • stop the Search service in central admin, clear the index files in the query server.
  • start the search service instance using Start-SPServiceInstance PowerShell.

Run the following PowerShell to reset the Query server:

$ssa = Get-SPEnterpriseSearchServiceApplication -Identity "SSAName"
$queryComponents = $ssa | Get-SPEnterpriseSearchQueryTopology -Active | Get-SPEnterpriseSearchQueryComponent
$component = $queryComponents | where {$_.ServerName -eq "QueryServerName" }
