search isn't working

One of my databases is having a search issue.  I can search the data from the Notes client UNTIL I create a full text index.  If I try to create the index and include attachments, I'll get nothing in the index!  It's literally 1KB, so no searches work.  If I create the index without attachments, I get a bigger index, but search doesn't work, either in Notes or in xPages.  I have created most of the documents in this new database, but if I search on my last name, I only get two documents returned (same in Notes and xPages).

Is there a problem with full text indexing in 8.5.3FP6?  Or is there something I need to check specifically on my database?

I have also compacted the database and recreated the index ... same result.

figured it out

I looked at the log, and there were lots of FTG errors.  I increased the FTG_INDEX_LIMIT and now search is working.  The limit was just WAY too small, so nothing was getting indexed!
