SQL Server 2008 - Disabling Full Text Search

  • Hmm... I blew this one. However, MSDN does not support that "Also, sp_fulltext_database cannot (and should not) be used to enable/disable full-text search."

    Cf. description of sp_fulltext_database at http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc721269(SQL.100).aspx#_Toc202506258.

    Seems funny that you can disable a feature but it still works.

  • Good question and a lot of great discussions. Thanks for submitting.


  • Hmm... that's interesting.

    You can disable the full-text feature by accessing the database facets... but I didn't know that you couldn't disable the full-text SEARCH.

    [edit] That options does nothing. Now I get it. Thanks.

    Well, thank you for the question.

  • Interesting question. I blew this one but learned something. Thanks!

    Although, like 71% (at this time) of the others, I got this wrong because I was thinking Full-text indexing on a table can be disable/re-enabled. The question, on re-reading, is unambiguous in that it quite clearly talks about full text search on a database.

    I did not even know that it was two different thing. I thought that full-text search was a search on the full-text indexing :crazy:

    Too much to learn in SQL... but very nice to always have something to learn :satisfied:


  • learned something i was not aware of....

    Better try and fail than not to try at all...

  • Hi there,

    I have something to ask. When I stopped my SQL SERVER FULL TEXT SEARCH and I going to Start it again there was a problem? "The request failed or the service did not respond in timely fashion, consult the event log or other applicable error logs for details".

    please help me to solve this error,
