MySite Turned off and People search does not work.

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 15, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
Hi everyone, as one of the requirements for our sharepoint server we have turned the "Mysite" functionality off.When I try to click on a resault of a people search to view someone's profile I get a 404 error. Obviously this is due to turning off Mysite.My question is, is this a bug in SharePoint? Why would turning off MySite not redirect the profile to Userdisp.aspx instead of Person.aspx (releated to mysite)??What I am interested in knowing is has anyone been able to edit the people resault page and redirect the profile information to userdisp.aspx instead of person.aspx?Thanks for any help!

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,


How People Search does work in SharePoint 2010?


I want to ask you couple questions:

1. If have 4 Web Applications. To be able to perform "People Search" do i need in Fast Query Service Applicaition to configure "SPS3://" for each Web Application?

By the way, yesterday my People Search finally succeed. I just configured in Fast Query Service Applicaition the following: http://mySite and sps3://mySite and didn't configured nothing else. Why i almost didn't see sites/blogs/articles with suggestion instead of http://serverName and sps3://serverName to put http://mySite and sps3://mySite?

2. Why in each site, explaining about People Search Configuration, i see, only examples like: http://serverName and sps3://serverName? When i put http://serverName i get as wrote above error: "The object was not found. (0x80041201)". You can try to do it by yourself and i think

Mysite Search Scope

I have four search scopes in the Shared services SSP. But in sharepoint 2007 mysite i see only All sites and People search scopes in the dropdown by default. I want to enable other two search scopes for all Mysites. I know how to enable search scopes individually but i would like enable search scope globally for all Mysites in my sharepoint webapplication.

Please suggest.


Filter People search

Is it possible to filter people searches?  For example, remove users with a certain last name?

Portal Search Work - Site Collection Search Does Not


In our SharePoint installation we have an SSP which indexes local office sharepoint server sites.  However there is a problem, although we can do portal searches which reveal search results it is not able to do local searches at the site collection level and as a result we are presented with the typical error below.


No results matching your search were found.

  1. Check your spelling. Are the words in your query spelled correctly?
  2. Try using synonyms. Maybe what you're looking for uses slightly different words.
  3. Make your search more general. Try more general terms in place of specific ones.
  4. Try your search in a different scope. Different scopes can have different results.

I am unsure as to why this strange event is occuring.  We do not have the WSS Search component running in the MOSS environment as the SSP service should be able to index and server search queries at the portal and local site collection level.


Any thoughts to this?



Advanced People Search

Hi All, I'm having a problem with the Advanced People seach webpart, one of the fields under 'Search Options' is Memberships. I have updated it inline with this article http://support.microsoft.com/kb/935196, which now brings back results when searching by using a distribution list name, but I'm still getting no results when searching by a Site Name (as displayed under in the "Memberships" webpart on a mysite) Also is there a way to change the word "Memberships" in the webpart, to something like "Site Memberships"

I can't get my search paging webpart to work

I created a page and put a core results web part on it.  I changed the url to myurl?k=pdf (to show a bunch of pdfs).  This works well.  I customized my xslt to show the columns that I want.   I added a paging webpart and it doesn't seem to work.  I added a refinement panel, and that does work.  Both are set to user query.  I changed both "Maximum page links before current" and "Maximum page links after current" to 2 so I would definitely see paging.

How can I get search to work for a Custom Document Library with a few third-party field types?

Hi, Using WSS 3.0 with SQL Server 2008 for Workgroups I have created a Custom Document Library (2,462 files - copied from folder into Explorer view and then renamed using Batch Update in web services i.e. "BaseName" field) - basically it uses three fields that are of "Filtered Lookup" (a field type from a third party). The document library is included in the search (i.e. Advanced Settings), but it displays none of the files - bascially not included in search at all with all testing I have done. I created a new Document Library called "Test" and uploaded a document and it is included in the search. Is there any way I can debug this. Is there a log file? Is there something in the Search Database that might help? Your help would be really appreciated as this is my last issue - and its soooo important to the deliverable. Thanks. John.

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 search do not work if I leave only 1-2 parameters to the Advanced Search Box?

I have add advanced search box to the SharePoint 2010 Server Enterprise portal. Default configuration works fine and I can also uncheck few parameters, but problem exists if only 1-3 parameters are checked and other parameters are unchecked. I would like to leave only "All of these words" and "Show Exact phrase" and remove the rest of parameters. However if I uncheck following, the search do nothing. SharePoint refresh the site, but do nothing. -Uncheck: Show "exact phrase" search box -Uncheck:Show "none of these words" search box -Uncheck:Show the scope picker -Uncheck:Etc.Kenny_I

Sharepoint 2010 search cannot work at all

HI I have just installed Sharepoint 2010 trial version. I installed with a 2 server setup - sharepoint and SQL was on separate Virtual machines. Previously the search could work. Crawl logs showed all success. Until yesterday I began to fiddle around with PDF iFilter and configuring it to make sure PDF could be searched. I consulted the following websites(http://sptwentyten.wordpress.com/2009/12/30/install-foxit-pdf-ifilter-on-sharepoint-2010-beta/ http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2293357 http://www.codeproject.com/KB/sharepoint/PDFiFIlterSharePoint2010.aspx) but faced problem along the way such as - issuing IISreset command (In the end I had to use services to stop/start IIS Admin Service), -restarting Sharepoint Search Server 14 (net stop osearch14, net start osearch14). (In the end only the local administrator account could perform this) - I also had other problems/typo so everytime I tried, I did a full crawl. Then I noticed my search could not WORK AT ALL after fiddling with Sharepoint along the way. It showed all failures in the crawl log. With 103 errors related to 'The object was not found'. It will show my top level sites even, ie http://domainname - but actually when i clicked on it, I could access. IN the event viewer, it showed Event ID 14 error. Task Category 'Gatherer', Event ID 14, Source is from 'Sharepoint Search Server'. details

People search in MOSS 2007




I don’t know much about the search settings in SharePoint. I have a requirement like I want to enable the people search for one of the SharePoint site which was created by someone else.


I know that people search will be activated by default if we choose the site template as collaboration portal, but in this case I am not sure about the template they used to create. By the way is there any way to find out which site template they used to create the site; that is apart.


What are the settings required to enable the people search in MOSS 2007.  

Why Search Option is not working correctly in the People Search Box?


I have SharePoint Server 2010 Enterprise based intra.
I have added People search box.

Why I click the Search Options, it opens the fields top of the webpart below the search box.
So basically 2 webpart looks like they are top of each others.


How to search people?


SharePoint 2010 offers a search button "Find People", but when I am trying to find people its not picking up anyone on the same site.

Is there any solution for this?

Can we pull out all names with a single search (like other applications as facebook, when we do not enter anything and hit search button, it gives out all the names), is there any work around?
