SharePoint 2013 Search Host Controller Service stuck on “Starting”

Standard

Problem

After installing SharePoint 2013 sometimes I found the Search Host Controller Services hung on “Starting”.

After much fact finding I came across the following that helped resolve my problem.

Resolution

Run a SharePoint Management Shell in Administrative Mode

Run the following command:

$SA = Get-SPServiceInstance | Where {$_.Status -like “Provisioning”}

$SA.Unprovision()

$SA.Provision()

After running the above scripts the Search Host Controller Service started.
