Managing Full-Text Search for a Server Instance

System management includes tasks such as managing the FDHOST Launcher service (MSSQLFDLauncher), restarting filter daemon host process if you change the service account credentials, configuring server-wide full-text properties, and backing up full-text indexes. At the server level, for example, you can specify a default full-text language that differs from the default language of the server instance as a whole.


Full-text indexing is fully supported in a Microsoft Windows failover cluster environment.
