Stop the following Services

– Microsoft Exchange Search
– Microsoft Exchange Search Host Controller


Navigate to the following path:


and run the following script to reinstall the search foundation for Exchange

.installconfig.ps1 -action u -dataFolder ‘ExchangePATHBinSearchCeresHostControllerData’

.installconfig.ps1 -action u -dataFolder ‘E:MicrosoftExchangeServer2013BinSearchCeresHostControllerData’


The first step will uninstall the services:

[PS] E:MicrosoftExchangeServer2013BinSearchCeresInstaller>.installconfig.ps1 -action u -dataFolder ‘E:MicrosoftExchangeServer2013BinSearchCeresHostControllerData’

Uninstalling configuration of Search Foundation for Exchange…
Uninstallation complete

The second step will be reinstalling the service foundation again. the only difference in the cmdlet is the parameter -i

.installconfig.ps1 -action i -dataFolder ‘E:MicrosoftExchangeServer2013BinSearchCeresHostControllerData’

Configuring Search Foundation for Exchange….
Successfully configured Search Foundation for Exchange

After doing this you should delete the copy database’s index folder, and then start the services again.

After restarting the services, it could take 10-15 minutes for the database indexing to start and for it to report healthy.
