Search result show unauthorized Files Share


Hi All,

I configured a FileShare content source, the crawl about this source works very fine, but when a end user perform a search on it ,he can show into the search result files that are no access on the file server, but when he click on it of  course he received an access is denied.

How I can filter the search result about FileShare content source to see only files with authorized access?

Thank you for your help,





SharePoint Search returns wrong date

Hi i am running a Sharepoint 2010 enterprise search indexing a file folder structure with emails(.eml) and attachments(.doc(x), pdf, xls(x), ...). The search results shows a date like first full index time or something like that, but not the date of file creation or any other attributes of the file. My questions: - what may be the reason of the wrong date? - is there a possibility use another attribute for displaying that is more relevante? Please help Kind regards Werner Durrer    

SharePoint Search Server 2010 Express returns no search results for non-admin users

This is going to sound crazy, but anyway... bare with me... I have a SharePoint Search Server 2010 Express (RTM) installed with a crawl account (call it sharepoint_crawl) which has full read permission to an entire site collection of 100,000 documents. I have logged in with this account to make sure it has read access to everything, and it does. I run a full crawl of all documents and allow it to finish. If I try and search the content for an extremely common term (i.e. 50,000+ hits) I get no results. However, if I log in with a site collection admin I do get search results. There are no indexing errors or query errors in either log files or event log. Everything looks like it is working correctly - just no results for non-admins Anyone tripped on this? I have recreated the crawl account and perform a full re-index with the same results. What gets me is that the crawl account does have read permission to the content it is indexing, the content is indexed correctly, but the crawl account cannot get results back. It is as if security-trimming is removing everything. Any ideas?

SharePoint Search returns all where user dont have access

Hi, There are around 10 divisional sites and home page in my MOSS 2007 configured with Search feature. The divisional users complained that all the documents are visible to all users, which is not supposed to be. How to restrict the Search based on the user access? Regards Sanra

Error accessing Search Settings and search returns 0 results

Quick summary - my MOSS 2007 server died. I brought up a new server, installed MOSS, service pack 1, service pack 2, created the new config database, then attached my existing content database (I have a separate physical server for the databases). After a few tweaks to get most of the other settings back in order, (most) everything seems to be working somewhat as it should except for Search. Whenever I try to access Search settings I get an error: "An error occurred during the processing of . The resource object with key 'S2SearchAdminDashboard_Title' was not found". I created a new SSP with it's own unique account for the service and app pool (read online that it should be different than SharePoint account because of the timer service conflicting with search), I tried copying the files (listed here: http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/sharepointsearch/thread/1a93ef86-be5a-44ad-a814-14613fd0a78f) from my test environment with no luck, I've made sure the permissions to the Task Scheduler were correct (found a Google blip about that somewhere), I've deleted and re-installed the SSP multiple times, ran the Configuration Wizard more times than I can count, but no matter what I do it never changes and always gives the same error. Also, whenever I try to access Central Admin it tries redirecting me to http://servername:portnumber/_admin/SearchServerW

Search returns nothing, crawler works fine(i believe) in MOSS 2007



i did some research in the forum before posting, but i can't seem to find a real solution for my problem, even though there are many threads discussing similar or maybe even the same problem. I will describe the problem in short, and then if someone can help me out and needs more info i can give more details etc.

So, i am new in my enterprise, and also to "real" informatics (recently graduated master 2) and i am supposed to administer the internal IT of the company. The SharePoint expert of my company just changed job, so i was kinda hired to replace him. The problem is, i have limited experience with SharePoint, just had my 70-630 yesterday but i am no expert. 

The problem with our SharePoint is that the search won't work(doh!). The crawler is working fine, we get things indexed etc, but then searches return nothing. I tried playing with scopes but as far as i can see, it's not that. What's weird is that apparently the search worked fine at some point in the past, then just mysteriously stopped. I discussed with the ex-admin and we tried to fix it, but we couldn't get it working.


I am kinda stuck, don't know where to look and which settings i need to check, on what le

Search This Site: Returns no results.



I am in the process of implementing MOSS 2007 and we have 2 site collections.   When we get to either site there are 2 search option This Site:  and All Sites.   All sites returns all the results but when search This Site I get no results.     We removed the People Scope because we aren't implementing mysites with the first release.    



Does anyone have any suggestions.   I had Microsoft on the phone yesterday but they didn't seem to be able to help.  


AJAX call to anonymous site returns 401 Unauthorized



I'm trying to do AJAX requests using jQuery to a custom aspx site which in turn gathers data from different lists and sites and in turn returns this to the client in a JSON object.

What I got:
A front facing page which does not require authentication.
A set of jQuery powered javascripts that should update certain parts of the frontpage with new content from the back end.
A server side custom page that builds and sends a JSON object with the proper data.

What I want:
A service that allows me to aggregate data from different lists and sites on the back end and feed this to the front page in a JSON object upon request. I don't need to write back updates to the list items on the server.

My problem: My current setup does not work for anonymous sites!

Also I was wondering if the way I'm doing this is the best (or preferred) way to perform such calls?

protocol handler returns search result our of content source

I am using protocol handler to do a search from a content source. After a full crawl, a document was moved out of the Content Source, and then I do a full crawl again, now I get a warning message after crawl as "Deleted by the gatherer (This item was deleted because the crawler did not encounter it during the last full crawl)", which means the crawl is good. Then do a search, the search results still return the item out of content source. Is it a bug or as designed? How to remove this item from search results?

Search returns no results for non admin users

Hi all, I can't seem to get search to return results for non-admin users. I can search fine as the administrator - but non admin users, although they can see the rest of the site content with no issues, they can't get any results on the search. I'm using MOSS 2007 on a server farm - the search config appears to be set up correctly but I can't find any info on why it might not be returning results for non admins - I would have thought security trimming would have stopped users from seeing content - so is there some way that users would be able to see the site but still not have 'real' access to it?

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

InfoPath forms library search returns no result on some records but not others


I have an Infopath forms library with about 500 forms in it.  When I search on the forms lbrary or the site that it's in, for the surname on the form (which is also promoted out as a column on the forms library) then I can find some forms, but not others.  The results are consistent.  So if I search for the name "Smith" I can find Smith's form, but if I search for "Jones" it always returns no results.  I have tried running a full crawl again, and also verified in the crawl log for the URL of the individual XML files for the forms for both "Smith" and "Jones".  Both forms are logged as being crawled successfully.  I am a site collection administrator and I can open both the forms and look at them.  The forms library has major versioning turned on and no content approval.

Any ideas on what might ber wrong?  Can anyone point me where to look?  We have one server for indexing and a separate one for queries (that also has Central Admin), plus two front end web servers.

MS SQL Server: Search All Tables, Columns & Rows For Data or Keyword Query

If you need to search your entire database for specific data, this query will come in handy.

So when a client needs a custom report or some sort of custom development using Great Plains, most of the time I will have to track down the data in the system by running this query and find the table(s) it is in.

SharePoint Gets Search Analytics

Microsoft's SharePoint Portal Server 2003 was sold into a large number of organizations based solely on the strength of the search tool. Organizations hungered for a way to find the data they had generated.

Adding Search Refinements in SharePoint 2010

I have been playing around with SharePoint 2010 Search this morning. I love the new UI. The search refinements panel is just begging to be messed with. In my case I wanted to add the file extension JPG as an Image Type refiner.
