I am getting "Failed to connect to **:13391 Failed to create session with content distributor. Unknown collection 'SP'" error for SharePoint 2010 Fast Search.

I ran this command Get-FASTSearchContentCollection -Name sp and got below result:

Name          : sp
Created       :
Cleared       :
LastInput     :
DocumentCount : 0
Description   : Default collection for SharePoint content
Pipeline      : Office14 (webcluster)

But when I ran this command Get-FASTSearchContentCollection -Name SP it returned below error:

Get-FASTSearchContentCollection : The content collection 'SP' does not exist.
At line:1 char:4

I seems like the name is case sensitive, whats wrong with using lower case like "sp"? –  Alex Choroshin Apr 20 '13 at 11:05
