When users performing search on a site they get " Access Denied " message.

  Asked By: Harsha    Date: Dec 02    Category: Sharepoint 2010    Views: 1609

I have created a Sharepoint site ( Test Enviornment ) and created dummy user id's , they have been given diffrent permissions ( read , contributor , designer ) , All these users when they perform search for a particular document on the site they get " Access Denied " message but if the site collection administrator does the search he is able to view the documents. Why are the other users getting "access denied".

PS: I am new to Sharepoint Administration , I may sound dumb.

Thank you in advance.

I was able to fix the issue , just wanted to update it here in case anyone else comes across this problem.

It was a pretty simple fix , I had to just think for some more time.

On the site I had created , the search was linked to a search centre and these users did not have access to the search centre site. Hance they were getting access denied messgae.
