I'm trying to run a Powershell script that updates the "PictureURL" for a specific FBA user on my SharePoint 2010 site. However, the script returns an error saying:
New-Object : Exception calling ".ctor" with "1" argument(s): "Object reference not set to an instance of an object."
Having read around, I found that 50% of people say to add my user to the Administrators list for the User Profile Service, and the other 50% say to add my user to the Permissions list for the User Profile Service.
So, I go to CA and select the User Profile Service. Clicking
Administrators I can add 'Kevin' to the list and the people picker find me (domain\kevin).
However, when I go the
Permissions for the same service, the people picker cannot find me at all, or ANY other user in the system, AD or FBA.
I cannot understand why the people picker works for one list but not another, so I find myself here.
