Full Text Search

  • I have Full Text Search installed on 4 nodes in a SQL 2016 Cluster, I understand that it is the SQL Full-text Filter Daemon Launcher item in SSCM.

    It is installed but in a stopped state and I need them started.  If I start them through SSCM will there be a need for a SQL Server instance restart as it is a production server and I would rather not have to do this.

  • Normally you can start the service, it doesn't require a SQL Server restart.


  • By default, the full-text service is set to "Manual" and starts when required (initiated by the SQL Server service I believe). Try running a full-text query and see if that starts the service for you.
