Error while configuring search (new scope) in SharePoint 2010 (on Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1)

When trying to configure search in SharePoint 2010 on Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1, you can get the following error when trying to create a new scope through central administration

The search application <app id> on server <server name> did not finish loading. View the event logs on the affected server for more information.
This error can be resolved by running the following command in Visual Studio Prompt
psconfig -cmd upgrade -inplace b2b -wait -force

It would take a few mins for the command to complete following which you should be able to create your new scope without any issues.

Note this issue seems to occur after installing Service Pack 1
