Error:
An Active Manager operation failed. Error: The database action failed. Error: An error occurred while trying to validate the specified database copy for possible activation. Error: Database copy ‘DB Name’ on server ‘servername’ has content index catalog files in the following state: ‘Failed’.

To Resolve it:
