I am running SQL Server 2005 EE.
When trying to perform a full database backup I receive the error message:
Failed to pause catalog for backup. Backup was aborted.BACKUP DATABASE is terminating abnormally.
After googling the issue, it seemed to be related to Full-Text Search not running properly, and so I checked and sure enough FTS was stopped. However, when attempting to start FTS, I recieved the following error message:
Service Dependency Deleted (ObjectExplorer)
I googled this error and found the following advice in a WordPress blog (kind of worried about following this advice as there was no explanation about why I would do this).
- Open the registry key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet \Services\msftesql
- Rename the value DependOnService to anything
- Restart the server
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
