I've got the User Profile service setup in SharePoint 2010 to sync user profiles with Active Directory. It is working and pulls down changes from AD.
What I would like to do is allow users to change their profile picture through their my site and then have the new picture file be pushed into the thumbnailPhoto or jpegPhoto properties in their AD profile.
I've found many websites that show how to map the SharePoint property to an AD property and how to set it up to Export those changes.
None of them have worked so far.
I think the problem has to do with SharePoint's property being a URL and AD's being binary...
So, is this even possible? And, if so, does anyone know how to get this to work?
Another option I've thought about is adding a new text property to AD to store the URL and then it can be accessed in a central location, but my concern is using other office products like Outlook that use the thumbnailPhoto.
