Have you already set up synchronization from AD and got that working? You need to upload images to AD. I use PowerShell for this $photo = [byte[]](Get-Content C:\abc.jpg -Encoding byte) Set-ADUser myUser -Replace @{thumbnailPhoto=$photo} setup mapping in User Profile to thumbnailPhoto run Update-SPProfilePhotoStore -MySiteHostLocation http://my ...

This is what I follow. The most important thing to note is if you screw up somewhere along the way you have to blow away your service application before trying again. Update Very rarely I have to remove the FIM certificates when things are really broken with the user profile service: Stop the SharePoint Timer Service Stop the User Profile Service if ...

Go to your Central Admin website Go to "Application Management" Go to "Service Applications -> Manage Service Applications" Click on "User Profile Service Application" Click on "Synchronization -> Configure Synchronization Connections" Click on your connection and select "Edit Connection Filters" from the menu Add a new ...

What that usually means is that your Active Directory isn't configured or managed the way that SharePoint expects. Grab your AD guy and have him sit next to you while you go to Central Admin -> Applications -> Service Applications -> User Profile Service. On the dropdown next to your default AD connection, there will be an option called "Edit Connection ...

I think it is a known side effect when installing June CU. You can either uninstall .Net 4.0 or force FIM to use .Net Framework v2.0 It is explained here in detail: http://blogs.technet.com/b/patrick_heyde/archive/2011/07/02/sharepoint-2010-junecu-2011-available-side-effect-info-amp-solution.aspx

I think in the case of the User Profile Service Application databases the recommendation is to replicate, rather than propagate these between farms. I don't think you can attach a User Profile database from one farm to another. If your user profile data is mainly coming from Active Directory I would suggest you just re-import the AD profiles in the other ...

When you attempt to access the new site, the User Profile Service Application is called resulting in the error. It looks like this service wasn't created correctly. Try recreating this service according to the following steps: Make a record of any user profile configuration you've made. Delete the User Profile Service Application. Update to the latest ...

Just to accomplish what John said, you can create a schedules task for the following PowerShell script: $UserProfileService= Get-SPServiceApplication 42gg4bda-1hd0-4df6-bfgg-54gd4df33ff $UserProfileService.StartImport($true) P.S. Full Import can be intensive though so be very careful with the schedule.

There are workarounds to utilize local account when installing on Win7, but you wont want to do that in a production because: you wont be supported by Microsoft your farm wont scale you can count on having weird issues that you will most likely not find documentation on. In order for you to setup synchronization, when you configure the sync you need to ...

I think you were looking for a way to remove the accounts from the search results? If so, you can create a crawl rule to remove them from the results. You can create a managed property for the account name and exclude it from the results. See this thread: ...

Have found bug related with this behavior. Steps to fix them: 1. Open [dbo].[proc_Profile_SetSearchUserTerms] procedure 2. Check @changedValues declaration (varchar) 3. Alter procedure with "DECLARE @changedValues TABLE (PropertyValue nvarchar(255), Direction int)" 4. Be happy.

Sharepoint 2010 has the ability to log just about everything ranging from your dog barking to the server has crashed. Not all of it as activated by default though. Have a look at Monitoring > Configure diagnostic logging in your Central Admin. Under SharePoint Portal Server there are a couple which you need to tick: SPS People User Profiles Personal ...

Usernames display as "domain\username" when User Profile Synchronziation has not yet been configured or there is issues with the service application / synchronization once it has been setup. Here is the MS TechNet information on how to configure User Profile Sync - http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ee721049.aspx.

InfoPath Form Services does not support claims based authentication (that's what MS Support told us, when we faced a similar issue with Nintex Workflow.asmx about a month back). If you look in the IIS logs you will see that the calls to the UserProfileService.asmx are getting made as nt authority\anonymous user instead of the currently logged in user. This ...

This is full 'road map' Central administration > Application Management > Service Applications > Manage service applications click User Profile service People > Manage User Properties select desired property > menu Edit scroll to bottom

You can map User Profile properties to BCS connections as long as there is a unique identifier on your SQL data that can map to a unique property in the User Profile. Here is a blog post that can walk you through it: http://www.kowalski.ms/2010/07/20/sharepoint-server-2010-supplementing-user-profile-imports-using-bcs/

The disabled/deleted accounts will no longer be imported, and will no longer be available in the User Profiles record set. That's the short answer. But I bet what you really wanted to know is what effect this will have on the active users' experience and SharePoint sites and documents created by a now disabled/deleted account. I'm no definative voice, but ...

You can have User profile synchronization and schedule the synchronization incremental timer job with the frequency you need.

Using the sharepoint Management Shell you can execute the following script. Replace the url with one of the application url's your are running on: $mySiteUrl = "http://portal.contoso.com" $sc = Get-SPServiceContext($mySiteUrl) $upm = new-object Microsoft.Office.Server.UserProfiles.UserProfileManager($sc) $upm.MySiteHostUrl If no url is available take one ...

Thanks for the helpful suggestions! I ended up following the Rational Guide to Implementing SharePoint 2010 User Profile Synchronization and that eventually solved my problems. At the end of the day it was the fact the user set up to do the actual AD synchronization did not have all the right permissions to do its job. It turns out the user doing the ...

I struggled with this for about a week and did all the configuration steps I could find (Delegate Authority in AD, Enable NETBios names, create and configure a new UPS, make a new UPS connection, do the sync, etc.). After doing all that my AD users were still not synching to SP 2010. Finally, I installed SP Server 2010 SP1 and simply tried doing the sync ...

Try to delete the User Profile Service, and its proxy and recreate a new one. I had to do the same thing whenever it didn't start.. UPDATE: Also try out this microsoft technet article: http://technet.microsoft.com/library/gg750257(office.14).aspx

There are two jobs, User Profile to SharePoint Quick Sync and User Profile to SharePoint Full Sync, that synchronize the User Profile database information with the UIL. Sometimes this stops working (properly) and in that case you need to run: stsadm -o sync -listolddatabases 0 stsadm -o sync -deleteolddatabases 0 The first command will list Content ...

The number could change based on when your user profile sync is scheduled. Profiles can be added or removed based on those sync schedules. Then you have the crawl schedules where the profile changes will be reflected in the index. It is possible that a crawl ran, but that something prevented it from reading all of the profiles, but that were picked up ...

To isolate the problem during setting up of User Profiles sync, it is very common that you may not get to the actual error straightaway. The right way to get the actual error message is to use the Synchronization service manager (MIIS Client). Path to MIIS Client can be found here: C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office Servers\14.0\Synchronization ...

I found this great article on how to accomplish this. Assuming that you already have basic user profile synchronization working, the steps are: Create an import PictureUrl mapping - Go to your Central Admin site "Manage Service Applications -> User Profile Service Application -> Manager User Properties -> Picture" and select "thumbnailPhoto" as the ...

There are no specific need that i know of to know what user installed the farm. You do need to know the farm account, but that will already be present when you try to start the sync service. Also this sync service needs to be local admin when service is started (this permission should be revoked after service has started). This is the no. 1 reason for the ...

A quick search has revealed nothing out of the box or third party available for this. However likely you could script something since there are plenty of API's that interact with Active Directory, you would have to: 1) Pull all information out of your Forms based provider (be it SQL Server, XML File, FaceBook, etc.) 2) One at a time, use the active ...
