Today I've been playing around with FAST search for Sharepoint 2010, and after doing all the installation and configuration steps, it took it too long crawling and without retrieving any results. So, after viewing the event log, I've found that error saying "Failed to initialize session with document engine: Unable to resolve Content distributor".

After searching for the error, the resolution was the following:

  1. Go to %FastDirectory%\etc\contentdistributor.cfg, and copy the line containing the FQDN for the server.
  2. Delete the FAST connector service application.
  3. Recreate the FAST connector service application using the content distributor as the one in the above file.

and then start a full crawl.
