Fulltext index bug - not updating after changing text column via a MERGE statement on a partitioned table with a nonclustered prim
My team has discovered a bug with fulltext indexes not automatically updating after a text change, yet are configured to do so. The bug seems limited to situations where a text column involved in a fulltext index is updated via a MERGE statement on a partitioned table with a nonclustered primary key. Change any of those 3 elements and the update will occur as expected. The problem was reproduced on 2012 Enterprise [11.0.5613.0], 2014 Enterprise: Core-based Licensing [12.0.4100.1] and 2016 Developer [13.0.1604.5].
