    Ektron Process Manager Service X.0
    Ektron Admin Service
    Ektron Asset Transfer Client 2.0
  2. App Pool in IIS:
  3. Update the Ektron Solr Administration page.
  4. Go to the Ektron Solr Admin page Search System Management (tab next to site registration)
  5. Update the Search Service Account
  6. Restart the Ektron Solr services and then the EktronSolrSearch Application Pool.
  7. Check to see if search results are returning.
  8. If not recycle the app pool of the CMS website.

<DRIVE>:\Program Files (x86)\Ektron\Search2.0\ProcessManager


<DRIVE>:\Program Files (x86)\Ektron\Search2.0\Asset Transfer Client
