Multi-tenancy and People Picker in split domains

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 15, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint


Hi there,

We have just setup a multi-tenancy SP 2010 environment, where the User domain is separate from the Resource (Server) domain.


I have setup a hostname based site collection for a test company and everything seems to be working correctly, including the User Profile Application correctly retrieving their profiles from the User domain (when you specify the OU of the company with the Set-SPSiteSubscriptionConfig cmdlet + in conjunction have a Sync Connection setup to retrieve the accounts from the other domain)

(2010) People Picker - How to target only 1 of 2 trusted domains


I need the peoplepicker control to point to a single domain.  I have two.

I tried using one of the peoplepicker properties from STSADM, but the peoplepicker is still pulling names from the other domain (the one I did not set using STSADM).

Any ideas?

SP2010 People Picker & Multiple Forests/Domains


Guys, I'm pulling my hair out here and need some help.

I'm trying to add users, using the people picker, from a domain external to SP. I've read all the articles on what to do, how to do it, the correct syntax of the STSAMD command etc etc and I'm still not getting a confirmation that the user exists in the external domain.

I'm at the point now where I'm following this article:


And have been running wireshark traces all morning. I can confirm from these traces that the WFE is sucessfully querying the external domain and even finding the user I'm looking for (sucessfull LDAP packets can be seen in my trace as per the article) however I'm still not getting the 'magic' underline that confirms that SP has found the user.

Can anyone help please?

Authentication for people picker

Hi All, People picker failed to track for the domain user. an error says "No Exact match was found"   I have look into many articles and one of it actually did solved my case. But i do not know what is the logic behind.   My web application's app pool is run under local account. When i try to create a site collection and people picker failed to match with domain user. I changed the app pool account(Identity) to a domain account to run the app pool. Then i try to create site collection, and people picker can match with the domain user. I do not know why. Can please brief me on the logic behind? Possible to trace for the domain user while the web app pool is running under local user account? This is a standalone farm but joined to a domain. Whole farm is using local user account to run the service. Thanks in advance.   Regards Jason  

User display Name & People Picker

Hi, We wanted to use a web application without user profile service. We have added users their display name is always domain\username. Is it that without user profile service display names will not be updated. But my understanding is that people picker also returns display name. Is it something else we need to configure to get the displayname from the people picker itself.Satheesh

People Picker & Replicate Permission

Hi, We have a IT env in a test domain and it is one way trusted to the domain where the actual users are. Recently we have tried adding a new web application for a different domain users (which is again one way trusted). But the people picker in this does not return any result. Does the account which is used for people picker need replication directory permission on that domain. And the ULS log says: (All these are Verbose information) SearchFromGC name = domain2.company.com. start SearchFromGC name = domain2.company.com. returned. Result count = 1 GetAccountNameFromSid "0x010500000000000515000000358A021AB47B733407E53B2BD9260500" start GetAccountNameFromSid "0x010500000000000515000000358A021AB47B733407E53B2BD9260500" returned. returnValue=False ------------------ Can someone help me what could be the issue.  Satheesh

People Picker gets error when selecting user from a trusted domain(one way forest trust)

  Hello all,   Our current setup is SharePoint 2010 Foundation server in one external forest(Trusting forest), and trying to have users in a separate internal forest(Trusted forest) access the site. The external forest's DC and SharePoint server are in a DMZ separated by a firewall with the internal forest's DC and users. A one way transitive forest trust was successfully created and has been validated. On SharePoint, we're ran the sts commands to set the setapppassword as well as the peoplepicker-searchadforests adding the domain that the SharePoint server is in, as well as the trusted forest. An iisreset was issued after running these commands. In SharePoint, we can then search for users from the trusted domain, and select the users in the Select People page, but when hitting the final Ok, an error is received: An unexpected error has occurred in which a correlation ID is provided. Reviewing the SharePoint logs we find the following: <!-- /* Font Definitions */ @font-face {font-family:Calibri; panose-1:2 15 5 2 2 2 4 3 2 4; mso-font-charset:0; mso-generic-font-family:swiss; mso-font-pitch:variable; mso-font-signature:-520092929 1073786111 9 0 415 0;} @font-face {font-family:Tahoma; panose-1:2 11 6 4 3 5 4 4 2 4; mso-font-charset:0; mso-generic-font-family:swiss; mso-font-pitch:variable; mso-font-signature:-520081665 -1073717157 41 0 66047 0;} /* Style Defin

Sharepoint 2010 Multi-Tenancy Access Denied on Tenant Administration Site

Hi, I am currently implementing a Sharepoint 2010 Multi-Tenancy solution. Multi-tenancy is the partitioning of service applications in 2010 to allow data to be separated between web applications or site collections. I am using multi-tenancy to separate data and user profiles between site collections hosted on a single web application. I have partitioned the User Profile Service Application and Proxy using Windows Powershell. The paritioned Proxy Application is then associated with the single web application. I am also using the Sharepoint Foundation Subscription Service Application to subscribe to different site collections within the web application. In this way data and user profiles can be separated. However, the tenant administration site, used to manage each collection, does not allow administrator access to manage the User Profile Service. I receive a standard Sharepoint 'Access Denied' error message. No other errors or details are provided. I have tried assigning different accounts to the tenant administration site but the error still appears. The issue arises when I issue the following SPSite Powershell cmdlet: NEW-SPSite -Owneralias DOMAIN\Username -Secondaryowneralias DOMAIN\Username. The attributes provided in the Cmdlet above are used to assign tenant site administrators however, the accounts cannot access the User Profile Service. Any ideas or recommendati

When I open the Content Type by going to NEW -> MyContentType in a document library in SharePoint it opens in Microsoft Word but the People Picker control does not render correctly in the Document Information Panel.

People picker

Dear Forum, I am a newbie in SP 2010 - so hopefully you are patient with me :-) I need some help on the following issue: I have started with defining a list using a filed for filling in a "Line Manager" (because people in my organisation did not fill in the "responsible manager" in Exchange/AD). The idea was to use a filed of Type "Person or Group" and to call this "Line Manager". When the user filed in the form a workflow is sending this to the "line manager" via email. For me being an administrator it works but for a "normal" user not - it is just running and "searching" but not showing anything. If I explain the filed that it should be related to the group "Viewers" it is picking all userids and we can select an userid for sending emails. But we do not want to add new users to this group - it should pick an userid from "All users". Sorry - I am really a newbie and maybe this is really a piece of cake - please be patient with me :-)   Thanks a lot. Manni

Infopath 2010 How to activate the people picker control

I am creating a form where i am populating a people picker with the logged on user. This is fine but how can i then activate the control to get it to lookup the display name and account type.   I am using a rule to set the AccountID field to be the Username function available in rules. Then on the form you have to click on the tick icon to finish the lookup. This is the bit i want to automate.   I also have c# code running in the background so am happy using .NET code to do this.   Thanks   Paul
