Regarding Editing the user profile Information in MOSS

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 30, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint

Hi All,

            I have very interesting situation over here and unable to understand what is going on behind the scene. There are two senarios as follows

1) Production server that host the site restored from old WSS on the MOSS---- when i go to the Peoples and Group and click on the user name and then click on the edit profile I am presented with the from where i can edit the profile information but according to the theory this should not happen if MY Site is Enabled

2) Production server that host the fresh site on MOSS--- when i go to the Peoples and Group and click on the user name and then on the edit profile I am presented with the page that contains the domain name and user name means i cannot edit the profile as expected according to theory.

Both the server are two different WFE but has the same databse server. Please help me to solve this mistry.

Error updating MySite profile in sharepoint (MOSS) - An unknown user profile error has occurred. Tr


We come across an error stating "An unknown user profile error has occurred.  Try recreating this user profile or updating this user profile from the directory service to resolve this problem". 

This scenario is observed only for a particular account. The User has got 3 profiles with different accounts.

Problem seems to be only on Production server while on PreProduction & Test server its working fine. 

We have even tried deleting the user profile and recreate, but still the account is not accepting any profile changes. Also checked in the logs files but it didn't give any clue for the issue. 

Is there any specific reason for this behaviour? 





WSS vs MOSS User Information List



I have a custom list with one of the columns being a lookup to a user. Now I have been using the list names "User Information List" to gather information about this user in WSS. However when I moved my code to a MOSS 07 server, I noticed that this list does not exist. What alternate list could I use to query information about the user. Below is some sample code that works on WSS.

Code Snippet

SPList listu = webSite.Lists["User Information List"];
SPListItem userItem = listu.Items[0];
string userEmail = (string)userItem["EMail"];


Restoring a content database from another server/AD does not synch user profile information for new


In my SharePoint 2010 beta environment, I have user profiles synching with Active Directory.  I just restored a content database from a separate environment/domain and logged in with my current account.  When I try to create an alert on a library/item, I get the error:

“You do not have an e-mail address.  Alert has been created successfully but you will not receive notifications until valid e-mail or mobile address has been provided in your profile.”

I went to My Profile and found that the My Profile had the right e-mail address (I guess because this is on my My Site Host).

But when I went to My Settings, it did not have any e-mail address for me (I guess this is because it is at the WSS content database level and the e-mail address hasn’t yet synched from the user profile database).

Does anyone the timer job that synchs the user profile with the My Settings for a site collection in a content database?

Issue is posted to my blog with screenshots here:



Advanced Basics: Remembering User Information in Visual Basic .NET


Many applications need to store user-specific settings to be persisted between sessions. But how do you go about saving and restoring these settings in your Microsoft® . NET Framework-based application? It's not all that easy to find the correct answer.

Iterate through profile information


I have a site I'm working on where the values being stored in user profiles can change so I need to iterate through all available profile options and display them (say in a label or gridview for instance).

Here is an example of a web.config I threw together

<profile enabled="true">
        <group name="Demographics">
        <add name="FirstName" type="String"/>
        <add name="LastName" type="String"/>

Collecting extra information using Create User Wizard

 I am trying to collect extra information about a user when the user account is created using the Create User Wizard. This info will be stored in a new table in the standard ASP membership SQL database. I have read several books and loads of online tutorials on the subject and they all take different approaches and seem to make the process hard work. Is there any reason why I can't add an SQL datasource and a number of textboxes  to the wizard step, 'connect' the values from the textboxes to the Insert Parameters and then put an Insert Statement in a suitable event handler to cause the insert? If this is possible what would be the best (ie simplest) way to 'connect' the textboxes to the insert parameters?   Regards Andy

SharePoint BDC - User Profile - 1:Many

Hi everyone, sorry for the long post, but I thought it'd be better to give all the information just in case there's a better way to do this. Basically, here's our scenario, we have a requirement to have Customers searchable in the people search (as in which employee sells to which customers).  We have a sql database with 3 tables: - employees(columns: userid, username, displayname); - customers(columns: customerid, customername); and - employeecustomer(columns userid, customerid) - we also have one view UserCustomer(columns: username, customername) So we've tried to create the BDC Applciation Definition on the view.  Here is the Entity Portion of the Application Definition file: <Entity EstimatedInstanceCount="10000" Name="EmployeeCustomer"> <Properties> <Property Name="Title" Type="System.String">username</Property> </Properties> <Identifiers> <Identifier Name="customer_name" TypeName="System.String" /> <Identifier Name="username" TypeName="System.String" /> </Identifiers> <Methods> <Method Name="Get_EmployeeCustomer_List"> <Properties> <Property Name="RdbCommandText" Type="System.String"><![CDATA[SELECT custo

User Profile Service account Write to AD Permissions

I followed this guide here (http://www.harbar.net/articles/sp2010ups.aspx) to provision the UPS service in sharepoint 2010. I found the guide very helpful and informative. Everything is working correctly except for the write back to AD I've followed the steps and have assigned the listed permissions to the UPS service account, however I still get permissiong errors in the FIM GUI Our AD is running in a 2008 environment but is in 2003 mode, so I made sure to add the UPS account to Pre Windows 2000 Compatible access built in group and restart the server so that the new group settings would take affect. Do I need to reprovision the UPS service or something? Or am I missing something completely. (Hopefully the latter lol!) Thanks RKB

User Profile Application Failing in SharePoint 2010 (14.0.4514.1004)

I keep getting the following error "This User Profile Application's connection is currently not available. The Application Pool or User Profile Service may not have been started. Please contact your administrator.". As sugested by Travis at http://blogs.pointbridge.com/Blogs/nielsen_travis/pages/default.aspx I tried commenting the two security nodes, removing its' allowInsecureTransport attributes, and setting then False. As Lionel wrote in his comment I tried also modifying "Central Administration / Application Management / Configure service application associations / Application Proxy Group" of my share point web application. My application pool for User Profile Service Application seems working and User Profile Service status is Started.One thing I remember about my issue, first I tried creating User Profile Service Application I got some error message and tried creating User Profile Service Application again. It gave me some other exception and than I navigated somehow to the "Manage service applications" page and there the desired User Profile Service Application was magically on the list with status Started. I thought - that's great! But when I clicked the User Profile Service Application link I got the nasty red error I mentioned at the beginning. Any ideas?Regards,Dawid Ireno

Customize the User Profile page

I need to add a "link" or "button" to the User Profile page (userdisp.aspx).  In SP2007, I had a custom feature that would forward the user to a custom aspx page, but that doesn't appear to work in 2010.  Is there a recommended method of customizing the User Profile page in 2010?
