Anybody know how can I add a root organization profile? I have following issue:

  • I did not have any organization profile

enter image description here

  • I created a new profile

enter image description here

  • I tried to add a child organization profile, but got error

enter image description here

enter image description here

I looked at SharePoint log and found that the OrganizationProfileManager.RootOrganization property is null.

What I do wrong?

Try to make a full userprofile import first. Normally u should have an default organization profile called "root organization", in my opinion it is not necessary to create it by your own.

Don't use the Configuration wizzard to create your User Profile Synchronization, do it manually:

To solve this issue I simply created new profile service.
