SYMPTOMS:

====================

When we do search on SharePoint Site on any content source, the result page gets displayed quickly, however when the results are of more than one page and we click on next we experience latency issues.

ERROR MESSAGE:

====================

Latency Issues when Click on next on Results.aspx page.

CAUSE:

====================

After Infrastructure updates we have seen a new feature incorporated i.e. Federated search. If you don’t have access to internet on the SharePoint Boxes or if accessing internet from SharePoint Boxes prompts for Username credentials causes the latency issues to retrieve the Search results

RESOLUTION:

====================

1. Use an account that has administrative permissions to log on to the SharePoint Server

2. Browse the Search Administration Page from Shared Services Provider

Note: Search Administration will be available after you Install Infrastructure Updates.
