We migrated from SP2013 to SP2016.

The link "About me" in the top right corner points to http://portal/Person.aspx, by clicking it the system tells Page not found.

I took a look in the Central Administration -> My Site Settings where followings are defined:

My Site Host -> http://portal:80/my/ Personal Site Location -> my/personal

What to do to solve this issue?

The curious thing is that using a static link http://portal/my/Person.aspx?accountname=i:0#.w|domain\username the page opens for all users, except the current one.


Same behaviour when accessing http://portal/_layouts/15/userdisp.aspx?ID=A_USER_ID. It works except for the current user.


Please check and confirm the following:

  1. "About me" url is "http://portal/Person.aspx". Is it a typo or is this correct?

  2. What was the url of mysite host in SP2013?

  3. Does a user who did not have mysite earlier face similar issue?

  4. Does a user which was added in SP 2016 directly also face same issue?

  5. What is the value of Personal Site Url for the user. User profile Service Application > Manage User profile > Search for User Profile > Edit Profile > check value of "Personal Site" Field. if it is / change it to /my/personal/ and validate "About Me" again.

  • 1) It's correct. Why do you think it is a typo? 2) On 2013 we had an alternative intranet access wich pointed to the same url. 3) All users have/had a personal site. 4) No new user in 2016. 5) It is /my/personal/{username}/ – Emaborsa Apr 3 '17 at 10:26
