I am encountering two different layouts of the mysite host (profile.aspx) in different environments, and cannot figure out why.

The difference is that the profile picture switches from the left hand side to a banner at the top with a much smaller image.

Was this changed in some recent CU?

Cannot find any feature differences between the sites.

Platform: SharePoint 2016 Master page for both environments: mysite15.master

  • What is patch level on both farm? Anyone has November 2016 cu or later? – Waqas Sarwar MVP Jul 3 '17 at 12:13
  • Left hand side image: 16 0 4534 1000 , Banner: 16 0 4456 1000 – submarines Jul 3 '17 at 12:16
  • So November and May – submarines Jul 3 '17 at 12:18
  • What I am thinking, one farm had modern one drive enabled and other dont. – Waqas Sarwar MVP Jul 3 '17 at 12:22

What I am thinking, one had modern one drive for business feature enabled and other won't.

You can try below code to disable and enable modern experience.

To enable:

$Farm = Get-SPFarm
$Farm.OneDriveUserExperienceVersion = [Microsoft.SharePoint.Administration.OneDriveUserExperienceVersion]::Version2 


To disable:

$Farm = Get-SPFarm
$Farm.OneDriveUserExperienceVersion = [Microsoft.SharePoint.Administration.OneDriveUserExperienceVersion]::Version1

  • They were different, but changing it did not update the profile layout. Maybe there is a timer job that has to sync something? – submarines Jul 3 '17 at 12:30
  • (did iisreset on farm) – submarines Jul 3 '17 at 12:32
  • Tested recreating mysite host with the version switched (from 2-->1) and the profile looks the same. – submarines Jul 3 '17 at 12:35
