Hi . We have three node clusters two active one passive.
On one of the passive nodes the Full Text Service will not start.
I have been told that the registry settings are lost and this is why it won't start.
MS are saying that the entire SQL Server needs to be uninstalled and reinstalled.
Im not 100% sure what happened i returned to this after vacation so bear with me.
Seems at the same time Sharepoint Search was enable. I not sure if something gets installed on SQL when you run Sharepoint Search features and updates registry on SQL or not.
Do you guys have any ideas, it seems odd to me that you cannot just reinstall FTS on the service.
Any insight would be appreciated.
