SharePoint 2016 search service instances stuck on Provisioning.

Copper Contributor


On SharePoint 2016 farm, two servers hosting Search service-related services.

While running command:

Get-SPEnterpriseSearchServiceInstance | select server, status

Both servers instances stuck on Provisioning, (screenshot attached).


Under services.msc both search services (host controller and search services) running fine.

But under central admin both search services stuck on starting. (Screenshot attached).


Most strange part is under search service application all 6 components showing Green and healthy.

Please suggest how to resolve this issue.
