I have a search query setup. It's pretty simple, it runs against the current project and looks at the Description field for specific text. If I run the same query against the title field everything works with no problems.

When I run the query, an error comes up stating 'stating there is a problem on the server. Contact your team foundation administrator.' Well I recently fell into that position, so I'm trying to address the problem.

Any ideas on how to troubleshoot the problem. Any help would be welcome.

Can you look at the event log on the application tier machine and see if there are any hints of what went wrong

I think you may need to enable full text indexing for the long text fields. The column is Words in the WorkItemLongTexts table on your database.
