I thought I would play with FAST server this evening, and I think I might be going a bit crazy here.
I have an instance of SharePoint Server 2010 Enterprise, and I can create FAST search sites.
In addition, my SQL Server instance has all the FAST_Query and FAST_Search databases set up.
Furthermore, the FAST search seems to be crawling correctly.
However when I try and search, I get an error from the search screen that says "The Search Request was unable to connect to the search service".
I have googled this hard, but all guidance on the internet seems to be around installing / configuring / trouble shooting the FAST Search Server for SharePoint. (Which is a separate install )
So my questions are:
A) Do I have a valid FAST Search Application already, or do I need to install FAST server separately?
B) If I do have a valid FAST Application, where can I find any documentation on the 'SharePoint enterprise" version?
Thanks in advance! Andrew
