SharePoint Search – AuthzInitializeContextFromSid failed (Via Andy Burn)

Andy Burn explains solutions of the problem he faced while using SharePoint search.

Excerpt from the post:

“I’d a really, really weird problem with a customer yesterday. We’d set up their SharePoint search. Indexing seemed to be working correctly, and when I logged in as an administrator, I was getting search results correctly. However, logged in as a normal – though very highly privileged – user my search results were missing! This was some thing of a surprise. It felt like security trimming, but the user was a Site Collection admin, and had Full Control throughout the entire main content web application. Also, we were indexing content off the network file share, and we knew he could access both the SharePoint Content.”
