Joomla forum uses the forum software phpBB3.
Searching in a database is more server intensive than just retrieving a topic with messages.
The "Sorry but you cannot use search at this time." message temporarily appears when the forum software has too little resources due to other visitors using the search at the same time or visiting the forum and retrieving topics/messages.
