People Search - Error

  Asked By: Marilyn    Date: Feb 01    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 1104

If I try to search for a people using "user account who has Read only access" it is throwing the below Error:

System.NullReferenceException: Object reference not set to an instance of an object. at System.Xml.XmlNode.RemoveChild(XmlNode oldChild) at Microsoft.Office.Server.Search.WebControls.PeopleCoreResultsWebPart.DeleteElementAddToMyColleaguesURL(XmlNode result) at Microsoft.Office.Server.Search.WebControls.PeopleCoreResultsWebPart.CreateXmlDocument() at Microsoft.Office.Server.Search.WebControls.PeopleCoreResultsWebPart.SortBySocialDistance() at Microsoft.Office.Server.Search.WebControls.PeopleCoreResultsWebPart.GetXPathNavigator(String viewPath)

However if I uses "System Account" which has "Full control", it is working as expected.

Any Inputs?

Open the peopleresults.aspx page (since this is the page where the error  was being displayed) in a web browser

Go to Site Actions, Edit Page

For the people  Search Core Results Web Part (where the search  results are displayed), select Edit, Modify Shared Web Part

Expand the Results Display/Views and change the Default Results View to Relevance rather than the default setting of Social Distance

Click Ok and then Publish the newly edited page
