SharePoint 2013: How to remove search component

leave a comment »


We are trying to remove a search component which is no longer required in Search service application.


We ran below powershell commands to remove the component from any application server:

Add-PSSnapin Microsoft.SharePoint.PowerShell -ErrorAction SilentlyContinue

#To get component ID:
$ssa = Get-SPEnterpriseSearchServiceApplication
$active = Get-SPEnterpriseSearchTopology -SearchApplication $ssa -Active
$clone = New-SPEnterpriseSearchTopology -SearchApplication $ssa -Clone –SearchTopology $active

Get-SPEnterpriseSearchComponent -SearchTopology $clone

#To Remove Component ID:

Remove-SPEnterpriseSearchComponent -Identity 73caecca-2126-4a7d-b45c-2632a90d7109 -SearchTopology $clone -confirm:$false

#Activate the new search topology
Set-SPEnterpriseSearchTopology -Identity $clone
