MOSS Search not working for anonymous users

  Asked By: Kami    Date: Jan 07    Category: MOSS    Views: 1278

Search gives results only when logged in and does not return anything for the
anonymous users.
Anonymous users can access the whole site fine.

The problem is that the search  results page inherits from a class that requires
users to be authenticated. You'll need to create a custom Search results  page
that doesn't inherit from LayoutsPageBase for anonymous  users to be able to
access the search results. You can either remove the inheritance statement
(which means it will inherit from a standard ASPX page) or create your own page
class based on UnsecuredLayoutsPageBase (which is the class LayoutsPageBase
inherits from). Point your site  at that results page and search will work
