Solution: This is caused by the Office Server Search Service having bad authentication information. First, go to Central Administration and click on the affected server. This should take you to the services on server view. Click on the Office SharePoint Server Search Service link and it will take you to the settings page. Enter the correct login information. On the machine itself, restart the Office SharePoint Server Search service in the Services management console. This should generate two new log entries Event IDs 10044 and 10045 indicating that changes to the configuration were successfully saved and imported. To re-enable search indexing on your site, restart IIS.
