  • Installing FAST on the same server as SharePoint is not supported.

    Refer to the article below on planning & architecture:
    http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ee781286.aspx

    In cases where you have such error in a supported architecure, the user need to be part of FastSearchAdministrator group. You may want to check if you are running the PowerShell window with your personal account. If so, this account does not have the required permissions needed inside FAST.  To correct the issue, try to  Run as Different User (hold down shift while right clicking on the icon), to run PowerShell with e.g fastuser account or administrator

  • This KB helped me, but I don't have FAST installed on the SharePoint Server. http://support.microsoft.com/kb/981297
