I have updated a user’s properties like title and address in the AD and run an incremental synchronization of the user profile but the users profile in SharePoint does not updates. If I run a full sync the properties are updated without any problem. What can be wrong?

  • What patch level is the farm at? There have been a few fixes for this over the years.

When ever you make changes like "changing the mapping of property or adding a new mapping or removing,or applying exclusion filter". You have to run the Full sync followed by an Incremental sync.
