I have a subsite with unique permissions. Users do not have access to the root, site.
This site has jquery ajax people search which performs a search.asmx. This fails.
even if the path to the _vti_bin/search.asmx
The query result returned is ERROR_NO_AUTHORIZATION
Users can navigate to the _vti_bin/search.asmx
It works if they are added to he visitor group of root site, but I do not want this.
If I add username and password to the ajax request it works again, but is not the solution.
