Cannot delete a Search Service Application

That’s almost 2 days that I’m trying to delete a Search Service application and when I click on Delete the command is running endlessly until timeout.

After a lot of research I have found a solution; in this case to delete the Search Service Application I suggest to you to open the Sharepoint 2010 Managed Shell and run the following command:

Get-SPServiceApplication | where {$_.DisplayName -like '*the name of your service*'}

Get the GUID of the service and now you can do the following:


stsadm -o deleteconfigurationobject -id D2E696CA-539D-442C-94F9-0369B4594D89

In this way the service will be deleted.
