To start, I think I've read every post/blog/etc there is on this subject. Currently I have user profile import to Sharepoint 2010 working. It imports profile data just fine. Everything in the FIM Synchronization manager show success even.
Its the export from Sharepoint to AD of the user profile picture that isn't working at all. I've gone thru the steps of adding the thumbnailphoto export under the picture properties. I can see the export inside of the FIM manager. I notice
though that in FIM there is there a DS_EXPORT of the objects. I've looked into the SyncDB and noticed in the metaverse table the SPS_MV_OctetString_PictureURL never gets updated with the information from the PictureURL column of the ProfileDB.
It is always Null. Actually in FIM it only shows one person with an update, and keep showing the PictureURL property as being not applied, which is probably because it is showing it as blank only. In the connector for the object in FIM, I
get the error that I've seen in some blog posts where it says PictureURL (String) is not compatible with SPS_MV_OctetString_PicutreURL (binary), but that seems to be how Sharepoint builds the connection even though FIM finds it invalid. I've had that
created, deleted several times, so I guess that is ordinary, and not sure that is even the problem.
