No search results are being displayed.

Quickfinder should only display files, when the user performing the search has the rights to see the file.

The files or on a remote server on a NSS volume and the remote server doesn't have a replica of the user.


This has been resolved in OES2 SP2 or later.

Additional Information

Steps to duplicate:
  1. install a OES2 SP1 LX server with Quickfinder
  2. install a NW 6.5 SP7/SP8 server. This server should have no replicas.
  3. create a user. This user should have his home-directory on the nw server.
  4. log in as the user and copy some files on his home-directory. Try to remember something you can search on later.
  5. define a index in QF that indexes the home-directory of the user. The index should be defined to only display files owned by the user.
  6. login in QF search as the user and perform a search. You will receive no results.
