Setup Mysite search for document search

All replies

  • Can you be more specific about what you are trying to achieve? SharePoint provides a good search engine out of the box.

  • Thanks for your response.  I have people search and search in general working ok on our SharePoint 2010 portal and even from user's Mysites.  However the issue is that users are not able to search for documents on their own document libraries.  I have tried a number of solutions but nothing seems to work.  

    Example of error returned is as below when searching from Mysite and using the default "search this site..." window or bar. The "find  people" window from Mysite top menu section again works ok but breaks if I changed the preferred search centre to the site collection URL that I created for Mysite web app to return results.

  • Are they searching for documents in their private or public areas?

  • Thanks.  I'm searching from Mysite, My Content, using the search bar in this areaa.  I guess  this is private to them however would include documents they have chosen to make public or share with others.
