Posts Tagged ‘A semantic language statistics database is not registered. Full-text indexes using ‘STATISTICAL_SEMANTICS’ cannot be created or populated.’

I came across this error message when I created full-text index on one of the file tables (a new table concept came in SQL Server 2012) and tried to create a full text index. Most likely this error is related to semantic search (a new type of search concept came in SQL Server 2012).
Let me explain this error in detail :

Message Number: 41209

Severity : 10
Error Message: A semantic language statistics database is not registered. Full-text indexes using ‘STATISTICAL_SEMANTICS’ cannot be created or populated.

Error Generation:
I tried to create full-text index on file table and received given below error message.

RESOLUTION :
The resolution is very simple for this error. Basically, you have attached semantic language statistics database in your SQL Server but most probably you’ve forgotten to register it.
Lets debug this error step by step.

Step 1:
First of all, lets check whether you registered the semantic database or not. Given below is the script.

USE master
GO
SELECT * FROM
sys.fulltext_semantic_language_statistics_database
GO
--OUTPUT

Install Semantic 1.3

As you can see that the above query result set is blank, which means semantic database is not registered.

Step 2:
Now, you just need to register semantic database, given below is the script.

USE master
GO
EXEC sp_fulltext_semantic_register_language_statistics_db @dbname = N'semanticsdb'
GO

Step 3 :
Once you registered the semantic database, execute the Step 1 again and check whether it is registered or not.
Given below is the same script but result set would be different because you registered the semantic database.

USE master
GO
SELECT * FROM
sys.fulltext_semantic_language_statistics_database
GO
--OUTPUT

Install Semantic 1.6

You can view the above result set and see that semantic database has been registered. You can create full text indexes on file tables without any errors.

HAPPY NEW YEAR 🙂
