SQL 2008 FullText Search will not Start

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 19, 2010    Points: 0   Category :Sql Server
 

Greetings:

I have installed, uninstalled and installed again MS-SQL 2008 Enterprise on my system. The installation seems to go OK. I used "Select ALL" when I was choosing which components to add. I saw "FullText Search" in that list and it WAS checked for installation.

I'm going through one of those Training Kits (70-433) and I need to install the example databases. One of them "AdventureWorks" requires Full Text Search to install.

I can see "SQL Server FullText Search" in the list of services on my control panel. It's startup type is "Automatic" but it is NOT started. I attempt to start it and I get a message window saying the it could not start it: "Error 3: The system cannot find the specified path."

When I select the FullText Search and look at its Properties, under the "General Tab", I find that the "Path to Executable" is completely empty.

I have no idea what the command line string should look like or even what the name of the execuatble should be.

I have been rooting through the WEB looking for solutions to this problem. One forum I read said that the file name that I am looking for is MSFTESQL.EXE. I have searched my entire harddrive. That files is NOT THERE. I DID find a file called MSFTE.EXE.

This has been going one for some time. I h

SQL Server 2008, SQLMetal and FullText Search

  

My Sproc:

ALTER PROCEDURE [dbo].[SP_SearchTopics]
	@keywords varchar(512) = '""'
AS
BEGIN
	-- SET NOCOUNT ON added to prevent extra result sets from
	-- interfering with SELECT statements.
	SET NOCOUNT ON;

	SELECT t.*, FTT_T.RANK as 'Rank'
	FROM Topic t
	INNER JOIN FREETEXTTABLE(Topic, [Name], @keywords) as FTT_T ON t.ID = FTT_T.[KEY]
	ORDER BY 'Rank' DESC
	
END


When I run sqlmetal on my database, I get this error: 

Warning : SQM1014: Unable to extract stored procedure 'dbo.SP_SearchPosts' from SqlServer. Null or empty full-text predicate.


I tried checking the @keywords parameter for null and empty string, but that doesn't work.  Any ideas guys?

MOSS farm: 1 index, 1 WFE,  SQL cluster

 

When we try to start the wss search service from the web UI we gat a 'system policies must have full control' message. I can start it manually but the app log is full of event ID's 6482:
