An unhandled exception occurred in the user interface. Exception Information: OSearch (SearchAccount)


Had this not very nice error whilst trying to start the search service on my single server SharePoint installation through Central Administration:

An unhandled exception occurred in the user interface. Exception Information: OSearch (SearchAccount)

This took me a while to figure out as it appears that even though I wasn’t using a Domain account, the UI seems to expect a ‘Domain format’ account, so entering DevMachine\SearchAccount worked!

Nice…
