Check that the _spotlight user has read access to the files.

It's true the _spotlight user doesn't appear on the ACLs but I can't add it manually. Neither Spotlight nor _spotlight are accepted as valid user.
It's suppose to be added by Xsan Admin doesn't it? How to add it again now?

I'm not sure how it gets added initially. You could add it with:
sudo chmod -R +ai '_spotlight allow readattr,readextattr,readsecurity,list,search,read,file_inherit,directory_inher it' /Volumes/VolName

Did it and it worked to add _spotlight to the ACLs but Spotlight still return blank results on AFP clients...
Do you know what should be the permissions on the .spotlight-V100 folder?
Spotlight works on the servers so the index is fine. It's the AFP clients that can't read it properly or don't get all the data from it.

same issue here - seems to be an issue somewhere in the AFP resharing - as spotlight is fine on all controllers and xsan clients. have rebuilt to no avail. i thought about the spotlight user thing too but have not tried that. i think the way xsan is indexed is completely different and not sure the spotlight user is necessary. you get anywhere with this?

No i didn't get anywhere. We're using EasyFind which is not a good for us.
The anoying thing with this is that it has worked for years.
