Using Secure Enterprise Search on Microsoft Windows Server 2003.

After activating the Identity Plugin for Active Directory (AD) and creating an NTFS source, the following behavior is observed after running the source scheduler, and the crawler indexed all the documents.

- When logging in to SES with a user who has permissions directly over the NTFS folder, the user get results for the search.

- If logging in to SES with a user who is a member of a group, having the group permissions over the folder, the user gets no result when searching
(The result of the search is 0 results.)

In the crawler log , the following errors are observed :
