Hi all,

We seem to be having a strange issue with a SharePoint installation.

Users can login fine and also browse the site however when searching the site they are returned no results.

When performing the same search from an administrator account results are provided.

Any help with what might be wrong is appreciated.

Are you sure the user has permission to the documents that appear in the Administrator search results? SharePoint has two basic settings affecting who sees search results (1) a setting on document libraries etc affecting whether the contents should appear in the search results and (2) only items that the user has permission to will appear in their results: http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/sharepoint-server-help/enable-content-to-be-searchable-HA010379092.aspx

From your description it sounds like they do not have permission to the content that would appear in the search results.
