In our test installation of SP 2013, the search service account was given read-only rights to the file share locations. USER-A has access to the same content as SEARCH-SERVICE. USER-B does not have permission to the directories within the file share.
When USER-B executes a search results are returned that normally are not accessible in the file share navigation.
Of course, when USER-B clicks on the link to the file it does not work.
What would be a reason that USER-B is seeing the increased results?
I have two theories.
- The file share rights are merely blocking the directory at the root and USER-B would be able to list the files in that directory, but not access
- NTLM is being used at the moment and this is causing something.
Any ideas would be appreciated - before I return with questions to the IT department, I would like to eliminate a few possibilities.
