My people search for SharePoint 2013 will not work, no matter what I do.
Here is a list of things I have done to try to fix it:
Ensured that the User Profile Service and Search Service are in the Service Connections for the web applications where you I'm doing the search.
Configured a Content Source. Added the URL for any SharePoint Web Application, (using SSL, so I used the sps3s://url)
Configured Security on the User Profile Service application. Made sure the crawlers had permissions. The crawl is working because it is pulling in the appropriate number of profiles.
Did a full crawl on the Content Source containing my sps3 content source.
Here is one more piece of the puzzle: When I go to User Profiles >Manage User Profiles I should be able to put 'mysiteurl' into the box and it should list all the profiles.
Except when I do it, I get no results.
Then I thought about how the profiles are listed in AD (the MILDOMAIN/User.Name) and I wondered if I just put MILDOMAIN into that box if it would list the profiles. It did. So it's not reading from the url, it's reading from Active Directory,
What happens when I do a search?
If I put in a name I get results back from documents uploaded and list items created, but if I use the drop down in the search box to select People or Conversations, I get an error
"Sorry, something went wrong /An unexpected error has occurred."
