In SharePoint 2010 "Search_Service_Application_CrawlStoreDB" DB is having consistency errors and we want to restore that DB from earlier backups.

What should the restore sequence as restoring that DB alone might create inconsistency across the search DB?


We had to do it last month because our Search_Service_Application_CrawlDB was corrupted (On SharePoint 2013), and simply restoring it and start a Full Crawl did the trick. It didn't cause any inconsistancies and the search is now working fine.

And no, you cannot avoid the Full Crawl like said in this post: full crawl keeps auto starts even though it is only scheduled for later (Can't found the Microsoft Article about that right now, but I'm sure I saw one...)
