We are having an odd issue that is driving me up a wall.

This is only occurring in the root site collection and it appears to happening MOSTLY (but not only) with people who are in other domains in the organization. 99.9% of all AM domains work and it seems like all the AP accounts get this error.

No account to date has had an issue accessing the /teams site collection, though. Permissions for the accounts are IDENTICAL on both site collections. This is not related to permissions for the accessing account. My current theory it is an issue with the app pool or farm account.

UPDATE: Users who are having this issue cannot be found in the people picker in this site collection, they can be found in the other site collections that they have no issue accessing.

Here is the full trace from the yellow screen of death:

A jr. administrator had used

stsadm -o setsiteuseraccountdirectorypath -url https://portal.domain.com -path <LDAP Path>

to change the value of the SiteUserAccountDirectoryPath property. He did this in an effort to restrict the people picker from displaying people not currently in the site collection from being displayed. When he made his changes it became apparent to him that it did not have the intended effect and he attempted to reset it to the default but instead reset it to the root of the primary forest. Most of our user accounts actually reside in another forest, though.

 PS C:\Windows\system32> stsadm -o getsiteuseraccountdirectorypath -Url https://portal.domain.com
<SiteUserAccountDirectoryPath>OU=Groups,OU=HQCity,DC=domain,DC=net</SiteUserAccountDirectoryPath>

 PS C:\Windows\system32> stsadm -o getsiteuseraccountdirectorypath -Url https://portal.domain.com/teams/procedures

<SiteUserAccountDirectoryPath />

I reset the value to the default using

stsadm -o setsiteuseraccountdirectorypath -url https://portal.domain.com -path ""

and everything worked.
