People search results showing members deleted from AD

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 13, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
Hi guysWe've configured a full nightly import of users from AD, but I'm seeing users who have been deleted showing up under the People Search function.  Does the import job delete accounts from SharePoint that no longer exist in AD?  If not, is there a way to change this?Tks,steven

Mysite profile pictures not showing in people and groups, or search results

My organization is running MOSS 2007 Enterprise with search.  Picture profiles uploaded to the user's mysite only appear while browsing from the Default zone.  When browsing the Internet zone, a broken link appears in place of the picture when viewing pages such as "People and Groups" or search results.  For example:

Default zone:

http://moss1:5154   <---- mysite
http://moss1:5155   <---- main sharepoint site

Internet zone:

https://mysite.domain.com  <---- extended mysite
https://domain.com             <---- extended main sharepoint site

The picture profile url that is appearing while browsing the Internet zone is:


Instead of:


All of the textual information is coming over fine, just the images have invalid urls for the current zone.
Does anyone know how to fix this?

Any insights appreciated,


Excel file not showing in search results

We have a strange issue. I have one Excel document (or at least one that I am aware of) that will not show up in search results for content within the document. I can find the document by title just fine, but when I search for words within the document I do not see it. The document was originally a 2003 Excel document and was recently converted to 2007. Other than that there isn't really anything unusual about it (some formatting stuff, but mainly just background colors and whatnot, nothing fancy). The crawl log shows the document was crawled without error. Anyone know anything else I can check on?

Search results page showing random characters instead of item's description

I have an email-enabled document library that a few Japanese people email PDF files into (all external to the company). When I search for any PDF file sent from particular email addresses, the search results page displays random characters instead of the item's description. Here is an example: From Screen shots These characters don't appear for all email senders, just some of them. Our MOSS site is in English and we don't have any language packs installed. The PDF file contents are also in English. Can anyone point me towards a solution for this?

Search Results Web part not showing all results

Hello, I have an issue with the people search results web part not showing all the results that exist for a particular query. The query in question returns 106 results, and it is showing 50 per page, but the paging bar only goes up to page 2, and the results summary says it is showing "x of 100 results". If I manually change the query string to say start=61 instead of start=51 for page 2, it will show me the last 6 people, and the search summary will say "showing 57-106" Why is it not showing me the option for a page 2? When I perform a similar query that returns 140 results, it will show me all three pages correctly. I have tried turning duplicate trimming off but it makes no difference either. Any ideas why this is happening? Thank you

People Search Results - Where do property/headings in the core results web part come from?

Hi there, I'm hoping this will be a nice simple thing to fix! We're running SharePoint 2010 Enterprise, using the Enterprise Search. In my User Profiles Service Application, I changed the display name of one of the User Properties. It it the SPS-Responsibility property. The out of the box display name is Ask Me About. The only issue is that in the people search results, the SPS-Responsibilty display name still shows as Ask Me About, not my new display name. This link shows this in a screenshot  I've tried various things such as resetting the index, running full crawls again etc. Could anyone let me know where this text is coming from? Thanks! Al

Why is SharePoint people search returning the same results as all sites search?


I've been having issues with the people search in that it doesn't return any results and the scope is 0.

I deleted the scope and recreated it adding the rule contentclass = urn:content-class:SPSPeople with behaviour : require but now when i search for people it seems to search everything not just people profiles. Please can someone tell me what I have done wrong when I recreated the scope? The scope still cant crawl the profiles but I'd like to at least get back to where i was before!!


search results showing label text


I have a custom page layout where I have site columns. My search results shows site column names as part of description. Actually it should show data within those site columns. To dig into this I looked into managed property "Description" which is mapped to following different crawled properties - 


I don't know what are those crawled properties. Can anyone help here?

Thanks in advance.


MOSS People search returns no results


I've done a fresh install of MOSS 2007. We have a farm with 1 web server, 1 query server, 1 index server.

I'm having issues with our people search. Our My Sites are on a seperate web application http://mysite

I have imported the user profiles from AD with no errors. My sites can be created with no problems. The only issue is when using people search it returns no results.

I've checked the crawl logs and im getting 2 errors

Error in the Site Data Web Service.

Error in PortalCrawl Web Service.

I cant see anything in the event viewer relating to this. The normal content search is working fine. Can anyone help me?

Thank in advance

Errors in the Crawl log and files not showing up in the search results


MOSS 2007:

Problem:  Errors in the Crawl log and files not showing up in the search results

Symptoms/ Error messages: "The filename or extension is too long. (The item was deleted because it was either not found or the crawler was denied access to it.)"

What I have done:  The file paths are under the limit imposed by MS, I already checked that.  The indexing account has access to the files security wise.

How to display a count of search results with keywords in a label?


Sorry for a basic post here; I am very new to VB!

I am currently building a search page, which includes a textbox and two drop-down lists, a search button, and a datagrid. If results are found and displayed, I would like a label to display:

(e.g.) "24 results found for 'blue sky clouds' "

...where the integer represents the results count, and the keywords and/or drop-down list selections are included in the string.

If no results are found I would like the label to display:

(e.g.) "No results were found that match your selection. Please try again"

I would also like the label to be invisible until a search occurs.

Thanks in advance!

How can I prioritise search results to show where document metadata has a hit first and then where t


When my users run a search against a site with a bunch of document libraries they will often search for terms that are in the title of the doc, if they do know the title they will put that in. What I would like to do is have the results ordered such that if any hits are on the document metadata (eg Title) then they are presented first and any results that are from hits on the content of the documents are presented later.

So, if they get the title spot on in their search query that document will appear first .... if they don't get it right then the likelyhood is that the title is something like what they entered so similar titled docs are presented first and then those with matching content ....

How can I achieve this?


No Results matching your search were found. WSS 3.0


I've got one sharepoint 3.0 site, which is a hostNamedSiteCollection which won't return any results when we search it - searching the entire site or a single list both produce the same "no results matching your search were found".
The site uses Windows Authentication.  We have no Alternate Access Mappings set up. It is regular HTTP
I've added test content to other sites housed in the same Web Application and searched - that new data is appearing in the results.
I did a backup using STSADM and restored the site to my dev server (as both a hostNamedSiteCollection & a regular site collection) - searches return results just fine.
I deleted the site from the prod server and restored it (into a different content database even!) from a backup  I made with STSADM - no results are returned.
I restored the site to the same web application as a Standard site (http://webapp/sites/sitename) (NOT a host named site collection) and results ARE returned.

I've looked at the trace logs & application logs on the server, but can't find any errors that I can tell might be related..

This is the only site I've ever seen have this problem.  We have plenty of other hostNamedSiteCollections and search is working fine on them.

FAST Search for SP2010 scope setting works but not getting results.



I am trying this from last two days , but it does not work. I have created two scopes for FAST Search Query SSA , they appear in search center , but I am not getting any results back. I see them being fired in the FAST query log.

First one is a simple one:

New-SPEnterpriseSearchQueryScope -SearchApplication "FAST Query SSA" -Name DCO -Description "All DCO Documents" -DisplayInAdminUI 1 -ExtendedSearchFilter "ContentSource:DCO"

Content source is a managed property. and i can just query "contentsource:dco" from the text box which gives me results.

When I fire the query i see it in FAST Search query log

"GET /cgi-bin/search?qtf_keyword:context=ssgid%3a%3a4d020606-8532-45d8-b09a-db11283cccb4%7cSPS-Location%3a%3a%7cSPS-Responsibility%3a%2c%3a%7c&rpf_navigation:hits=50&rpf_navigation:enabled=True&spell=suggest&qtf_parsekw:timezone=10&type=kwall&qtf_teaser:dynlength=185&resubmitflags=8192&language=en&query=CASHIERING&sortby=%2bdefault&qtf_lemmatize=True&offset=0&version=
