Office SharePoint Server Search is missing in Services on Server?

There is a requirement to transfer the Search Index role to another server on the farm in order to reduce the load on a particular server. So went to “Central Administration > Operations > Services on Server”

I wondered, “Office SharePoint Server Search” is missing in Servers on the Server!!!

Office SharePoint Server Search is missing in Services on Server

This is because: When you install SharePoint, You have to choose “Complete” installation instead of “Web Front End”.

So be careful which option you’re choosing, because after a wrong decision, I had to suffer here.
