Duplicate people results in Search

I’ve fallen for this twice in the last few months now – when you set up a search source for SharePoint 2007 Server, you do not need to separately index the User profiles on My Sites – if you do, it generates 2 results for each user.
SharePoint search is smart enough to automatically pick up the user profiles associated to the MOSS Site you are indexing. Sometimes, it doesn’t help to try and outwit the Search Engine’s logic 🙂

About Brad Saide

I'm a SharePoint consultant. I'm also slowly going bald, seem to have a permanent spare tyre around my waist and enjoy socialising with friends over a beer or 10. The last 2 may possibly be related. Started working with SharePoint when the first version was in limited beta release (participated in the Technology Adoption Program while at Woolworths) and have been committed to the adoption of the technology as a business enabler ever since.
