We are implementing SharePoint 2013 and attempting to search for people through the “People Search” search box.  When entering in any name we are getting the following message, “Sorry, this item hasn't been shared with you”.  What additional setup do we need to address in order for it to look into our Active Directory and pull back the correct information?

While the message implies a permissions mis-configuration, this error message is displayed even for the administrator accounts.

Hi,
for People Search you need various parts up and running:
- User Profile Service
- Managed Metadata
- My Sites

Detailed steps can be found here:

If you have setup everything and still have issues, please add the info about your SharePoint environment (single server,...) version and edition (e.g. Cumulative Updates) and which type of authentication you use.

Thanks and HTH
Rainer
