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

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 13, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
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,

People search results showing members deleted from AD

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

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

MySite Turned off and People search does not work.

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!

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

Moved MySites. Now suddenly while Search finds the user profile pictures, user profile pictures don'


We did an architectural change and moved MySites by creating a new MySite host, assigning it to the User Profile Service application and then deleting the old MySite host.

I'd like to avoid recreating the User Profile Service application. Is it possible to fix this UPS issue (I assume it's an UPS issue), without recreating UPS?

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!!


Profile import does not update People and Groups


I've come across an odd issue which hopefully you can help with.

I have around 12000 objects in my AD domain which have been imported fin usig the profile import schedule.

If for example an attribute is changed for a user, say job title or department it does not seem to be updated within the people and groups page of site settings.

However if I perform a people search or check the profile in CA then it's updated fine???

Should the profile import / update process also update the attributes in People & groups or this a one off snapshot taken when the user is added to a specifi site or group???

Many Thanks


Profile Pictures showing as broken images


I noticed today that all of the people that have added profile pictures are now showing as the broken image "red X". I checked the User Photos library located in the root mysite site collection and all 60 people that have added their images show up as a broken image. I tried re-uploading my own image and it completed without issue, the entry in the library updated with today's date but again broken image.

My farm has been running great and the only thing that has change recently is I applied the ClaimAuth KB update that central admin was having a fit about. I'm going to dig thru the logs and see if there's any info but thus far I haven't found much.

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.

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

Hi All

I want to know if you can restrict people search display users within a Group.

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.

MySite Employee Pictures not showing up within connected farm

I have two sharepoint 2007 farms.  One holds the global intranet content for all our opco's and houses the mysites.  The profile pages are enabled but not the personal pages.  We have allowed our users to update their employee pictures within their profile page.  Those pictures come through within web parts and lists just fine within this farm.  The other farm is in another domain and have connectivity to the mysite info on the other farm.  Within the secondar farm we are not seeing the pictures but get all the other data just fine.  What might be our problem with not seeing the image on this secondary farm?
