Retrieves a full text index.


   [[-Name] <String>]


This cmdlet retrieves a full text index object. The full text indexes are the searchable content of a Microsoft FAST Search Server 2010 for SharePoint system. Although it is also possible to search on a specific managed property without using a full text index, full relevancy calculation is only done when searching in full text indexes.

If no name is specified, all full text indexes are retrieved.
