I have started working on a new sharepoint farm 2013 on-premises for our customer, and first thing i checked is the managed services they have which seems fine, except for the User Profile Service, which is showing 35 user profiles, although the User Profile Sync Service is stopped and they do not have any Sync Connections!!, as follow:-
- when i access the User Profile managed service, i found that currently there are 35 user profile:-
- so i wanted to know how they are syncing the user profiles, so first thing i found is that the User Profile Sync service is stopped as follow:-
- also from Manage Service application >> User Profile Service >> Sync Connections, it does not contain any entry, as follow:-
- finally here is the sync settings they have, which depend on the User Profile Sync service:-
So i got confused on how the 35 user profiles are there, although the UserProfileSyncService is stopped + they did not define any Sync Connections + the sync setting is set to use the stopped User Profile Sync service ?? so how things are being handled ?
Now when i click on a username inside one site collection, i got this page
while on another site collection i will get this page
http://servername/sites/siteB/_layouts/15/userdisp.aspx?ID=1, where less properties and also different properties are being shown (for example here the email is shown inside a property named e-mail, where on the first page the property is named as work email):-
but inside the User Profile service, there is only one user defined not 2.
