I have a problem with search "by Author" in sharepoint 2010.

I have 2 farms, one with Windows Auth and one with Claim Based... I have an application that has to work in the same way in each installation...

In windows auth: Author: Name Surname In claim based: Author:

There is a way to make search work in the same way in the two farms?

Thank you very much!

Do your claims based users have their name filled in properly in their use profiles? Search should be able to search by full name, that is when the author field in the document library lists a full name, instead of the login (which is used when no name is available). – Jasper Jul 10 '12 at 15:29
Yes, name is filled but works ONLY if I search by email.. – Ziba Leah Jul 10 '12 at 16:20
Strange, I would know then, sorry. Normally a person field would be filled with something like "45#;Firstname Surname", where search would use the latter part. But I'm no expert on this unfortunately. – Jasper Jul 11 '12 at 8:06
