To be able to search for people, there are some additional steps you must take which include to configure My Sites, have a working managed metadata service and then crawl the users properties.

Follow the steps from Microsoft to set it up in your environment correctly.

Doing an AD import is simply not enough.

  • there are alot of config @@. So do you know any other ways to create a People Directory? Sep 24 '14 at 9:25
  • Well, to be honest i think this is the best way to get relevant data, and keep the updates automatically and directly from the AD. If you got data you could just create a custom list, but that would be a lot of work to administrate it. Sep 24 '14 at 10:26
