SPS v1 Subscription notification problems

  Asked By: Abhishek    Date: Feb 01    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 763

We are having some problems with our server subscriptions and I was wondering
if anyone else was experiencing the same or a similar problem.

Here is a brief description of the problem:

Sharepoint users with Reader and Author access to a subscribed folder are not
receiving the subscription notifications if the subscribed folder does not
have the Everyone group assigned with at least Reader access to the root and
its parent sub-folders.

Subscriptions are scheduled to be sent immediately, daily or weekly.
Subscriptions scheduled for immediate processing are sent every 5 minutes. For
example, when a document is published, all subscribed users are supposed to
receive notifications either via the browser dashboard or e-mail.

However, in our production SPS server, subscriptions are not generated when
modifications are made to the subscribed folder if the Everyone group is not
assigned at least Reader access to the root and its parent sub-folders. If the
Everyone Group is removed, even if the subscribed user is a member of another
group with at least Reader access, the notification is still not sent. The
browser dashboard web part (Subscription Summary) also does not show that the
document was modified even though the published version number is incremented
and date shows that the file was modified.

We have not found a similar problem in the Knowledge Base.
The problem cannot be reproduced in another server.
This problem is not affecting all workspaces on the server, only two of them.

Also, our incremental indexing seems to be taking much longer than usual on
this server .
