SharePoint 2013 - Search Crawl Index Reset Error
I was working on the getting search set up and the crawl was not working. Doing a "Index Rest" would eventually time out and when I looked at the error using the ULS Viewer I found "Application error when access /_admin/search/searchreset.aspx, Error=No connection could be made because the target machine actively refused it." In my case the problems were caused by the "SharePoint Search Host Controller" service being disabled.
