FastSearch-Documents(Word,Excel...) searchable through Fast Search only by few users while all the users have full access to the SharePoint List RRS feed

  • Question

  • We had implemented FastSearch in Our Organization.All the users have full access to the documents(Word,Excel,...) in a SharePointList and the SharePointSite containing List is being crawled.While searching for the documents(word,Excel,...) through FastSearch some Users are able to see the documents in the SearchResults but some are unable to see the documents in the search results.

    Would you please let me know the reason for this behaviour of the FastSearch.

  • This sounds like a security trimming issue.
    If this is not a production system, is it possible to disable security and try to search from the qrserver directly (port 13280 default)

    To Disable:

    1. Log into each QRServer and go to $DRIVE:\FASTSearch\etc\qrserver

    2. Open qtf-config.xml file.

    3. Scroll to the bottom and comment out this line:<instance-ref name=”securityfql”    critical=”1″ />.

    4. Restart QRServer: nctrl restart qrserver

    If the documents are returned with security disabled, then this is highly related to trimming.

  • Balaobulareddy,
    Wanted to check if you have any updates of the case and if you get document returned from qrserver with security disabled.
