We are experiencing very slow people searches, when trying to pick a user from a SP group containing 500 names.
Some people this week have experienced errors after about 10 minutes of waiting.
I have a form where the users need to pick an Authoriser. The List of Authorisers is held in a Custom Sharepoint Group. Site column was then built to select people from that SP Group. The good news is the Lookup address book dialog shows the group members OK
Unfortunately if the users do a search in this dialog, or from the main form, the server now takes (on average) around 3 minutes 51s to find the user (from about 500 names), and sometimes fails completely - either with an error, or just returns control
to the form with no result.
Has Microsoft changed the algorythm for this search to search the entire AD? (I am working in a huge organisation with domains round the world, some are NT4). On a previous project (last year) a similar search only look 2 s!
Any suggestions? Any recent Server packs that might impact this (possitively or negatively?)
