Consider the following scenario. You configure Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 to crawl an IBM Lotus Notes database. In this configuration, Microsoft Windows domain user accounts are mapped to Lotus Notes user IDs. A user logs on to SharePoint Server 2007. Then, the user searches for Lotus Notes content. In this scenario, no documents are returned in the search results.
This problem occurs even though the following conditions are true:
The documents exist in the Lotus Notes database.
The user has at least Reader permissions to the documents.
SharePoint Server 2007 successfully crawls the Lotus Notes database.
This problem occurs if the following conditions are true:
The documents are set to the "All readers and above" permission.
The template on which the Lotus Notes database is based does not use an Author field.
In this scenario, the Lotus Notes protocol handler incorrectly processes the permissions for the document.
