BDC Import for user profile picture

I am attempting to populate the user profile property 'Picture' with data from a BDC connection. My column from the BDC contains urls but SharePoint will not allow me to map Picture to the column. I"m guessing this is because the property is expecting a strongly typed Url type. That doesn't help me though. So, has anyone successfully mapped the Picture property to a field from a BDC connection. (-SN: I know the field can be mapped to AD but I need it mapped to a BDC) Thanks in advance.

Import user profile from another domain active directory

Hi, I have SharePoint 2010 running on DomainB andwe have corporate users on DomainA. i need to import users from both domainA and DomainB. I am able to import users from domainB and not able to import users from DomainA. I made a successful connection to both Domain A Ad and DomainB AD in SharePoint 2010 user profile synchronize connections. I am able to sync users only from DomainB (SharePoint 2010 running on domainB) and not able to synchronize profiles from DomainA (outside domain). Is there any additional configuration I need to do. Please help me on this issue. Thanks, Ratna

Unable to see Active Directory Groups in the User Profile Database after Profile Import

SharePoint Server 2010 Enterprise RTM. W2K8R2 w/multi-server setup: AD/DNS SQL 2008 WFE APP Claims Mode Web App only using Windows Integrated Auth So, this was never a problem in 2007, and I didn't even realize it was a problem in 2010 until I started to build a solution that utilized my blog article: InfoPath - User Roles in Browser-Enabled Forms Using AD Groups.  I went to utilize the same web method of the same web service, but I noticed that no data was showing up at all.  Typically, the GetUserMembership/GetCommonMembership methods return the specified user's memberships: AD Security Groups, AD Distribution Lists, and SharePoint Sites (not SharePoint Groups, though). My user profile sync is working.  All AD users are pulled in with the proper profile data. "Users and Groups" is selected in the Synchronization Entities section of my Sync Settings. Security groups are working for permissions and audience targeting.  Confirmed my users are affected properly by the use of Security Groups. My query to the GetUserMemberships web method (and GetCommonMemberships) is running (not failing), but it's not returning anything even though my user is in some Security Groups and has explicit membership to multiple sites. The GetUserProfileByName method of the same UserProfileService.asmx web service returns all the regular profile data

Disabled AD accounts not excluded in Profile Import


I am running a clean install of MOSS 2007 SP2 on Windows Server 2008 R2, all patches/updates etc. have been applied.  (this was not an upgraded SP2003 server)

I have the following User Filter in place for the import from our Active Directory:


SOME disabled accounts are imported into the User Profiles and appear in the User Information list, while others are not.  This is happening AFTER 3 or more Full Imports have run since the time the user accounts were disabled in AD.  All of the accounts are 'disabled' the same way in AD, right-click and choose disable. Looknig at the menu via right-click on the account displays "enable" and looking at the properties shows that the accounts are disabled.

I have tried several different versions of the user filter but cannot seem to find a way to exclude all disabled user accounts.  I searched through the forum and found several similar, but not exactly the same, posts which have never been "answered".  Since this situation is a variation on those I thought I would try ag

how to import user Profile Picture already stored in AD as thumbnailphoto or jpegphoto


We already store out photos in AD using both the thumbnailsphoto and jpegphoto properties. Outlook2010 shows the user profile correctly. Now we want to sync sharepoint 2010 with AD and retreive the photo. I currenrlt have it setup as mentioned in this MSDN post to Export.


Is it odd that the thumbnailphoto and jpeg photo have been in AD since at least 2007( I think they were even in 2003 schema) but that this user profile syncing to those two atributes isn't the default behavour? Outlook 2010 used those photos instantly, yet sharepoint can't out of the box?


I've opened a Case with MS about this. I'll post findings here.

**Edit 2**

Also the previous method used in Moss 2007 doesn't work wither. Setting the URL to the photo in an AD ExtensionAttribute1 and having sharepoint import it.

Profile synchronization problem - can successfully import single users but not from a group - can yo


I can successfully import a single user into SharePoint 2010 from AD (proves settings permissions are correct) and the number of user profiles increases and I can locate the user including profile data from active Directory. But when I try to import an Active Directory global security group no users get migrated. In fact the single users profile gets deleted.

Can somebody explain whether it is possible to migrate users into SharePoint 2010 from with security groups in Active Directory?

Also when I retried to import the group of users it deleted the single user that I had successfully imported, I didn’t think this was possible, I ran an incremental synchronization, i need to import roughly 2000 users and was going to do it in stages to make sure all users were imported but if the process can remove users then each sync run could be adding users and removing users, how will I ever keep track?

Below is the synchronization run report, are there logs files that could give me more information?

How do we create new User Profile Synchronization connection so that we can import profiles from AD

We have a requirement to authenticate users against Active Directory LDS in our SP 2010 farm and also import their profiles in user profile store. We are able to setup FBA using AD membership provider to authenticate against AD LDS.

I am interested in importing the users in AD LDS to SharePoint user profile store. 

When I try to create a new connection the options that I am provided are 
1. Active Directory
2. Active Directory Logon Data
3. Active Directory Resource.
4.SunOne (LDAP) 5.2
5.Novell eDirectory (LDAP) 8.7.3
6.IBM Tivoli (LDAP) 6.2

If I select any of the options 1/2/3 I am asked to provide Forest Name and Domain Controller name. Since this is AD LDS there is no Forest or Domain Controller. It’s just a generic LDAP server.  

So the question I am struggling with  is: what are the steps required to create a User Profile Synchronization connection to import users from AD LDS and not from AD DS? 

We are not able to find any information how to do that in SP2010… From other blog entries I am assuming it was supported and documented for MOSS2007.

There is NO “LDAP Directory” connection type in SP2010.

I am wondering if this is supported in SP2010.


SSIS Import - incremental file import



Is it possible to import an incrementing file in SSIS using a different file name each day?
For example – on Monday I want to import “file1” on Tuesday I want to import “file” and so on.

This is so I can set a package up in SQL server to run everyday using a different file.

If not, are they are similar work arounds?




Profile import does not update People and Groups


I've come across an odd issue which hopefully you can help with.

I have around 12000 objects in my AD domain which have been imported fin usig the profile import schedule.

If for example an attribute is changed for a user, say job title or department it does not seem to be updated within the people and groups page of site settings.

However if I perform a people search or check the profile in CA then it's updated fine???

Should the profile import / update process also update the attributes in People & groups or this a one off snapshot taken when the user is added to a specifi site or group???

Many Thanks


User Profile Import using ADFS 2.0



I've set up a lab environment with SharePoint 2010 using ADFS 2.0 as identity provider. Thanks to harbar's highly recommended blog everything works fine (though it took me some time ;-)).

My next goal is to configure User Profile Import. I've read Mark van Eijk's very helpful post and the thread on this forum. But still keep wondering how to configure this. My problem is that in the Edit synchroniztation connection dialog (section Connection Settings) there is no Authentication Provider Instance available after I chose Trusted Claims Provider Authentication. Any hint what's going wrong is very appreciated.

I've tried this as pre-step for my actual goal: I have some users from another domain who will log on my sharepoint. These users are organized in a foreign domain and there is no trust between "my" domain and the users' domain. I need to import the user profiles of these external users though. I had in mind to do this by using the ADFS claims as source for the user profile synchronization app

In a POC environemnt we are trying to import the profile information from Novell GDS according to the following configuration:

·     Connection Name: Novell

Installer guides users to the .NET 4.0 Client profile installer instead of the full .NET Installer



Our Windows 7 application is using the standard VS 2010 setup project and our deployment requires the full .NET 4.0 installation NOT the .NET client profile. The launch conditions of our setup specifes the .NET Framework 4, (not the .NET Framework 4 Client Profile). However on target systems that need .NET installed as a prequisite; the user is guided to the NET Framework 4 Client Profile rather than full download. The result is frustrating since most users don't know the difference so they install the client profile; reattempt the installation which still fails because the full .NET Framework never got installed.

Is there are workaround for this? Additionally is there any plan to have .NET 4 presinstalled on Windows 7 or devliverd by Windows Update?

Thanks in advance

On further inspection this occurs only when the installation is started from the msi installer. Setup.exe is OK. However any assistance on when full .NET 4 will be installed on Win 7 or pushed by the Windows update service would be appreciated

Code Optimized Web Development Profile (VS 2010 and .NET 4.0 Series)

When you first run VS 2010 it prompts you to select an IDE profile to use. The profile you select will configure how tool windows are displayed/docked in the IDE by default and set the default keyboard shortcuts. You can then customize any of these settings by using the Tools->Options menu within the IDE and then override/change them. You can also later reset your profile and pick a different one by choosing the Tools->Import and Export Settings menu command.

Configuring Profile Image Export in SharePoint 2010

It's no secret that I am thrilled with the new social features of SharePoint 2010. I am most excited about the new Profile Picture handling. I strongly believe that the more we can show the faces of our colleagues to one another the more connected we will feel. Clearly Microsoft feels that way as witnessed by the many features that make use of the Profile Image like the Activity Feed and Colleagues list
