BUG #: 52932 (SQLBUG_70)
SYMPTOMS
If a user attempts to run the Full Text Indexing Wizard for a SQL Serverdatabase using Windows NT Authentication, without first selecting thatdatabase, and the user is not a member of the System Administrators(sysadmin) role, the Full Text Wizard will fail with the following errormessage:
[SQL-DMO] The name 'guest' was not found in the Logins collection. If
the name is a qualified name, use [] to separate various parts of the
name, and try again.

The user should be presented with a list of databases to select from toenable Full Text Indexing.
WORKAROUND
To work around this problem, a member of the db_owner role (DBO) of adatabase who is not a member of the sysadmin role should first select thedatabase before launching the Full Text Indexing Wizard.
STATUS
Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in SQL Server 7.0. This problem has been corrected in U.S. Service Pack 1 for Microsoft SQL Server 7.0. For more information, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:

MORE INFORMATION
Only members of the sysadmin role or the database owner (DBO) havepermissions to create a Full Text Catalog. If a user without thesepermissions attempts to create a Full Text Catalog, the Full Text IndexingWizard will fail with the following error message dialog:
Only members of the sysadmin role or the database owner can execute this stored procedure.

This is expected behavior. Ensure that the user has the appropriatepermissions before running the Full Text Indexing Wizard. You can confirmthis in the SQL Server Enterprise Manager by doing the following:
  1. Under the Security folder for the SQL Server, click Logins.
  2. Right-click the user name and then click Properties on the shortcut menu.
  3. Click the Server Roles or Database Access tabs and select the appropriate role or access to perform the task.
