I just found our Exchange Server 2003 (clustered EE, version 6.5, Build 7638.2, SP2) running on Windows Server 2003 (clustered EE, SP2) lost full-text index of Mailbox Store and Public Folder store (Index size: 0 KB). I wonder this happed after I installed a Exchange Hot Fix (for Exchange Cluster) last weekend. I tried to redo the populate. I got following error:
The project <ExchangeServer_MYEXCHANGE priv5E5E90AC> cannot be initialized. Error: 8004111e - The Indexer failed to update or access information because of a database error. Stop and restart the Search service. If errors continue, reset the catalog and rebuild the index. In some cases, it may be necessary to delete and recreate the catalog.
After restarting the Microsoft Search service, I did population again but this time I got;
The RPC Server is unavailable.
ID number: 800706ba
Exchange System Manager
I deleted full-text index of Public Folder Store and tried to recreat it. Then I got same error message above.
I did netdiag test but did not find any error (all passed).
Any idea? Thanks!
