The Search request was unable to connect to search service

The Search request was unable to connect to search service

While we try for the search in the site, it comes with the below error,

   sorry something went wrong
   The Search request was unable to connect to search service                    
                        

Solution: The issue is due to the web site that we are searching is not connected with the Search service application. To connect the site with the search application, Follow the below steps.

·        Go to central administration->Application management->manage web applications
·        Select web application which you need search
                 

·        Click on Service connections on Ribbon
·        Check the Search service application is in connection with the website.                 
·        If not then connect the search service application with the website, to do this, check the box of search service application and Ok.                
           
·        Once done, you were able to connect the search service to web site. 

Note: If two sites are created with the Enterprise search template in same farm, This error should occur.

If search service is in stopped state also, this issue could occur

SharePoint default page not loading by default.aspx

SharePoint default page not loading by default.aspx

I find that I can't browse SharePoint 80 or SharePoint Central Administration v4 or any sites using the default URL (http://webserver/). I’m trying to do this locally from the actual server SharePoint is running on. It gives a HTTP 404 'Webpage cannot be found' error in IE. If I want to view either of these, I have to specifically type default.aspx manually:


http://webserver/default.aspx to view the SharePoint 80 site
http://webserver:port/default.aspx to view central admin.
 
                       
It is the same when using local host instead of web server. I again will have to enter default.aspx to come the pages up.
Here are some things I've tried already but had no luck:
Added http://webserver and other relevant names in Alternate Access Mappings
Ensured Default.aspx is top of the list in 'Default Documents' in IIS7
Checked the hosts file
Set DisableloopbackCheck in registry and restarted.

Solution: I resolve the issue once I run the products and technologies wizard. Once the wizard is successful, All the sites including central admin came up by default without manually typing the default.aspx.

Windows Power Shell Remoting in SharePoint 2010

Windows Power Shell Remoting in SharePoint 2010
                     

A very detailed article, how to configure and administer the power shell to another machine remotely.

SharePoint 2013 commands must be run on a SharePoint 2013 server.
The commands cannot be run from a client. Power Shell 3 does provide a remoting capability whereby commands can be executed from a client to run on the server. This is a Power Shell function and not specific to SharePoint 2013, and many of the SharePoint 2013 cmdlets will not function through this remoting interface.
