FIX :HTTP 404 returned Searchadministration.aspx after Infrastructure update

After installing Infrastructure update + Dec CU to local VM, my SSP got a lot of UI pages to administrate the search functionality. But unfortunately the /ssp/admin/searchadministration.aspx was not provisioned properly which results in a HTTP 404 error page whenever I click over the link from the quick launch.

After looking in to the \12 hive\Features\ folder this searchadministration.aspx file and a bunch of webpart definition files(ActiveCrawls.dwp, CompletedCrawls.dwp,SubSystems.dwp & SystemStatus.dwp) comes with a feature called S2SearchAdmin which required a forceful activation to bring up this search admin page in SSP.

Finally the following STSADM command did the trick
STSADM -o activatefeature -name S2SearchAdmin -url http://ssp-public/ssp/admin/ -force
