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
