BAck up of 5GB database run for 12 hrs and when I investigate things are pointing toward FullText search on the database. I rebuild FTS catalogue but problem still persists. So I tried restarting Server FullText Search Service and now the state of FTS is "Change Pending....". I tried to stop and restart but with no luck. How can I fully restart search service and change its state to "Running"?
update: I run the following query on the index catalog in question
select fulltextcatalogproperty('MyCatalog', 'PopulateStatus') and no results after running 20min. What do I do to drop or fix this index catalog? I couldnt even take backups. Please Help! Its driving me crazyyyyyyyyy. Thank you.
