It Seems like Search crawl account needs to be given read permissions in all user accounts and groups.
The MSDN KB article has all Technical reason why
How do you give these permissions to crawl account, as below
The Windows Authorization Access Group (WAA group) has read permissions to the TGGAU attribute of all user accounts and groups.So,if you add the SharePoint Services service accounts to the WAA group,the SharePoint Services service account has read permissions to the TGGAU attribute of the user accounts.
To add the SharePoint Services service account to the WAA group, follow these steps:
On the domain controller, click Start, point to Programs, point to Administrative Tools, and then click Active Directory Users and Computers.
In the Active Directory Users and Computers window, expand DomainName, and then click Users or another appropriate organization unit (OU).
Double-click the SharePoint Services service account you want to modify.
In the Properties dialog box, click the Member Of tab.
On the Member Of tab, click Add.
In the Select Groups dialog box, type Windows Authorization Access Group under Enter the object names to select, and then click OK.
Restart the SharePoint Services.
That worked for me, hope it helps someone else out as well.
Automated SharePoint 2010/2013 PowerShell-based installation script. Introducing AutoSPInstaller v3 with numerous enhancements including: Granular SQL server assignment and aliasing for (almost) every service/web app (for control freaks) Centralized, remote installation to all farm servers Ability to specify any XML input file, by passing it as an argument to AutoSPInstallerLaunch.bat Several tweaks & fixes AutoSPInstaller now works reliably with SharePoint 2013, and of course SharePoint 2010 including Service Pack 1 for SP2010 (with or without the June 2011 CU)!
AutoSPSourceBuilder: a utility for building a SharePoint 2010 / 2013 install source including prerequisites, service packs, language packs & cumulative updates.
Utilizing PowerShell and BITS (Background Intelligent File Transfer), AutoSPSourceBuilder will download any missing files (wherever feasible) then assemble them to achieve an integrated, “slipstreamed” master source repository for your SP2010/2013 installation. You simply provide the original media (e.g. ISO file or extracted bits), and AutoSPSourceBuilder takes care of the rest!
ULSViewer allows users to open a ULS log file and display its contents in a user friendly format. Users can then perform advanced functions such as filtering, sorting, highlighting, loading logs, appending logs, etc in order to single out the data that is important to the user.
AxioWorks SQList allows developers to expose SharePoint content as normalised SQL Server database tables. This unique Windows service enables the integration of SharePoint with existing systems or can hugely accelerate the process of developing rich web based applications leveraging the advanced UI, workflow, and access control that SharePoint provides.
Project Description A windows application for viewing SharePoint ULS log files more easily. Supports filtering and easy viewing of data. Note: Many people have commented that since this projects release, Microsoft has released a viewer (by the same name!). It apparently has more features (although some problems of its own).
SharePoint Solution Deployer helps you to deploy SharePoint solution packages (.wsp) to multiple SharePoint environments. It deploys, retracts and upgrades one or more WSPs and can be extended to perform additional custom tasks in PowerShell before or afterwards. Unlike the most of the available scripts on the net, it performs all necessary prerequisite checks and post-deployment actions on all servers in the farm to assure the deployment runs smooth.
The Windows PowerShell Integrated Scripting Environment (ISE) is a host application for Windows PowerShell. In Windows PowerShell ISE, you can run commands and write, test, and debug scripts in a single Windows-based graphic user interface with multiline editing, tab completion, syntax coloring, selective execution, context-sensitive help, and support for right-to-left languages.
The Feature Admin Tool finds faulty FeatureDefinitions and cleanly uninstalls them.
It finds feature remainders in sites, SiteCollections, WebApps and in the Farm, caused e.g. by forcefully uninstalled Features from a farm without deactivating them before. These faulty features, never visible, cause errors.
New in SharePoint Administration Toolkit 2.0, the SharePoint Diagnostic Studio 2010 (SPDiag 3.0) provides SharePoint administrators with a unified interface that can be used to gather relevant information from a farm, display the results in a meaningful way, identify performance issues, and share or export the collected data and reports for analysis by Microsoft support personnel.
This project site stores all the PowerShell scripts developed for SharePoint farms (WSS or MOSS) management.
Each script is available independently and can be modified as desired
We decided to create this project, because we develop in our Jobs many PowerShell scripts to manage all our SharePoint farms (WSS V3 and MOSS). Having this done, we’ve heard that many people could be interested to see, use and adapt that kind of scripts for their own needs.
Anyone who regularly uses Log Parser 2.2 knows just how useful and powerful it can be for obtaining valuable information from IIS (Internet Information Server) and other logs. In addition, adding the power of SQL allows explicit searching of gigabytes of logs returning only the data that is needed while filtering out the noise.
Update: Release 1.5 (12/22/09) now available with client-side installation Two weeks ago, we promised that the next release of SharePoint Analyzer would be coming soon, and today we’re happy to announce that SharePoint Analyzer v1.3 is now available for download as a free beta release from Bamboo Labs.
The SharePoint 2007 Developer and Administration Tools (SpDAT) aim to help both technical and non-technical administrators/developers of a SharePoint site to work faster. A set of features that add additional settings pages to manipulate your SharePoint site quickly.
A SharePoint 2010 and SharePoint 2013 solution allowing end users to leverage the Word Automation Services service in order to convert documents. Includes a SharePoint Designer 2010 and 2013 Workflow Custom Acitvity
Export version history can be used to export the version history of SharePoint 2010 List items to Microsoft Excel. It provides button in Ribbon to do bulk export and also in the ECB menu to export single items.
Remote SharePoint development is getting more important. Especially with SharePoint Apps. To speed up development, find hidden lists/items/documents, discover the structure or specific artifact properties use the SharePoint Client Browser which supports both SharePoint 2010 and SharePoint 2013.
40 SSL Diagnostics tool
The SSL Diagnostics tool is a very useful tool for troubleshooting SSL issues. It generates a detailed report of SSL settings for all the websites on an IIS server which helps in quickly identifying SSL issues.
