Full-Text Index Search, SQL Server 2008

Hello,

I am strying to set Full-Text Index Search on SQL Server 2008 installed with all features on Windows 2008 server.

Typical Instruction suggest the following steps:

=================================================================

1.In Object Explorer, expand the server, expand Databases, and expand the database in which you want to create the full-text catalog.

2.Expand Storage, and then right-click Full Text Catalogs.

3.Select New Full-Text Catalog.

In the New Full-Text Catalog dialog box, specify the information for the catalog that you are re-creating. For more information, see New Full-Text Catalog (General Page).

4.Click OK.

==================================================================


The problem is that I do not see "Storage".

I am surely missing something. Please Help

steps invloved for FTS using TSQL
change the values according to your DB


--1 Verify the database is enabled for full-text searches.


--EXEC sp_fulltext_database @action = 'disable'

if DATABASEPROPERTYEX('AdventureWorks','IsFullTextEnabled')= 0
      EXEC sp_fulltext_database @action = 'enable'

GO

--2. Create a full-text catalog.
--drop FULLTEXT CATALOG ftCatalogAdventureWorks
CREATE FULLTEXT CATALOG ftCatalogAdventureWorks as DEFAULT

go
--3. Create full-text indexes.
--drop FULLTEXT INDEX ON HumanResources.JobCandidate

CREATE FULLTEXT INDEX ON HumanResources.JobCandidate(Resume) KEY INDEX
PK_JobCandidate_JobCandidateID;

go
--QUERY NOW
SELECT *
FROM HumanResources.JobCandidate
WHERE CONTAINS(Resume, ' "mechanical engineering" ');

Hello,

I did exactly what you suggested and I was able to use the query using fts.

My question is: Is it because I am using VS Management Studio Express that I am not able to configure fts using the method I described above?

Also, is it possible to run fts service on xp and vista?

>>I am using VS Management Studio Express that I am not able to configure fts
not sure in that case
