The SearchServiceApplication.Pause() command does not return search results if a SharePoint query server is shut down in a SharePoint Server 2010 farm which has more than one SharePoint query servers

Consider the following scenario:
  • You configure two Microsoft SharePoint Server 2010 servers as SharePoint query servers in a farm.
  • You create a Search service application on a SharePoint server.
  • One of the two SharePoint query servers is shut down.
  • You run the SearchServiceApplication.Pause() command in a SharePoint PowerShell window.

In this scenario, the command does not return True. Instead, the SharePoint PowerShell window stops responding.
To resolve this issue, apply the following hotfix updates: 

  • 2536591 Description of the SharePoint Foundation 2010 hotfix package (sts-x-none.msp): June 30, 2011
  • 2536588 Description of the SharePoint Server 2010 hotfix package (osrchwfe-x-none.msp): June 28, 2011
