Hi All,
Our database had some issues which we narrowed down to a problem with the full-text catalog.

I have run the following query:
Use DBName
EXEC sp_fulltext_database 'enable'  
and It says 'Query Executed Successfully'

However, when I select the Full text catalog and right click on it - the option REBUILD is disabled.
Please assist - how do I rebuild this catalog.

Thanks,

UPDATE:

We decided to restart the server and now the full-text catalog is blank.
Click on Full-text catalog and expand (+) returns nothing.
