The restore of the Sharepoint 2010 Search Service Application database takes an excessive amount of time to complete. The restore will eventually succeed, but the data hasn't been restored. After the restore, the database is present, but the proxy will be missing.


Debugging the restore will show the following in the SPSWrapper debug log from the Sharepoint web server:


[1190] 02/03/11 15:12:23 Executing Powershell cmd Restore-SPEnterpriseSearchServiceApplication -Name "Search Service Application" -ApplicationPool  "SharePoint Web Services Default" -TopologyFile "C:\Program Files\Symantec\Backup Exec\RAWS\logs\dfaef553-5d4a-45ff-8419-03bed0799920.xml"  -KeepId:$true
