Hi,

Ive been trying all day to start my project on Full Text Indexing (FTI), but have bee held my by the interface. Most example ive seen on the web seem to be using the interface to create the index (http://www.fogcreek.com/FogBugz/kb/dbsetup/FullTextSearch.html) but for some reason on my local installation doest even have the option and the "storage" node is not available either. There are some posts explaining how to deal with FTI greyed out options, i dont even get that. What am i doing wrong?



Im 100% sure FTI is installed on my machine
Ive installed MSSQL Express with Advanced Services edition (sql 2005)

select fulltextserviceproperty('isfulltextinstalled') returns1

Im able to execute the following with no error
CREATE FULLTEXT CATALOG MyFullTextCatalog

I just want to use the GUI as im new to FTI.


setup - win 7 64bit
Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio Express                                    9.00.2047.00
Microsoft Data Access Components (MDAC)                                    6.1.7600.16385 (win7_rtm.090713-1255)
Microsoft MSXML                                    3.0 4.0 6.0
Microsoft .NET Framework                                    2.0.50727.4952
Operating System                                    6.1.7600


Please help, i need to start on the project asap.

If found the article but i dont understand what they mean by having to use non-LocalSystem account over a LocalSystem account.

http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=907256

>>im not sure what account im supposed to assign to it.<<
Perhaps you overlooked this part:
To resolve this issue, you must change the full-text search service account after you have installed the full-text search service.

To change the full-text search service account, follow these steps:
1. On the Start menu, point to Programs, click Microsoft SQL Server 2005 CTP, click Configuration Tools, and then click SQL Server Configuration Manager.
2. Right-click the Full Text Search service.
3. Select Properties.
4. Type the new account information

hi,

No i didnt over look it, i just dont know what account details i need to add. Im not server side literate so i have on idea what they mean by local/non-LocalSystem account.

Ive assigned the service an account that was available (local/non-LocalSystem i have no way of knowing) but it still didnt work.

If you "assigned the service an account" then it cannot be a Local System Account.  But you can verify by checking the account in teh Services applet in the Log On tab.

Ive given up trying to get this working.

I followed steps 1-3 as above, with step 4 ive did the following

By default the option is Built-in account = "Network services"
I selected the option "This account" instead,
Hit the "browse" button followed by "advanced" and "find now", Selected my login user, guest, administrator and anonymous none of them worked.

Ive ended up creating the catalogs/indexs using SQL code.

Thanks for all your help.

Sounds good.  You will find that this is always the better way.  For most SQL Server actions the GUI is far too limitting.
