The FAST Content Indexing Engine is deprecated in this version of the software. For more information about the Obsolescence Policy, see Obsolescence Policy.
Effect of Deprecation
You cannot content index any new data with a FAST content indexing engine, and you cannot search data that was content indexed using a FAST content indexing engine. After you upgrade to the latest version of the search engine software, you must re-pick the backup jobs for the data that was content indexed using the FAST content indexing engine to re-index the data in the new search engine to re-enable searches.
