In SQL Server 2012,2014 or 2016, when documents are too large for Full-Text Search indexing, an exception that resembles the following is logged in the SQL Server error log, and a dump file is generated. Additionally, full-text queries may return incorrect results.

ex_raise2: Exception raised, major=300, minor=45, state=53, severity=17

Note Support for Full-Text Search indexing on large documents that exceed word position values greater than 4,294,966,016 is not added in this update.

After you install this update and SQL Server indexes documents that are too large for Full-Text Search indexing, the documents are skipped, and SQL Server generates an error message resembling the following in the Full-Text Search error log instead of throwing exceptions and generating file dumps.
