At the moment the NotesDatabase class contains a method to create a new Full-Text Index, but only for a Local database, not for remote databases.
Getting access to the current Full-Text Index settings for a NotesDatabase object beyond a boolean that tells me if the db is indexed or not would also be helpfull

That is absolutely correct. Why this hasn't been included from the start is a brain fart of major proportions... :-)

Updating local db's is probably the safest bet. Allowing updates on the server, well, that's like giving a kid a gun isn't it ?

But I would support a controlled way to programmatically control the FT index on the server to. But probably have some kind of idiot-proofing in place so if some clown tries to keep running the indexer everytime a document is saved the server can ignore the request if it's going to stress out the CPU.

I had a situation where I needed to create multiple (local) identical FTI's and did a button in an email to call an agent in the DB to create the FTI. I am not sure but couldn't you simply connect to the replica on the "remote" system and kick off the FTI build the same way?
