Extended MySite: Profile picture uploading to the wrong zone.

Posted By:      Posted Date: August 26, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
 
I'm experiencing a problem where uploading a profile picture, in a MySite, uploads it to the wrong zone.

What I've done is created one web application and configured SSP to use that same one. As a result, the MySite host location is in that same web application:

Default Zone:
http://my.domain.com  <-- default SharePoint site.
http://my.domain.com/personal <-- MySite host

I then extended that web application to enable FBA & anonymous access:

Internet Zone:
http://extended.domain.com <-- extended default SharePoint site.

Now I"m able to navigate to a user's MySite using the extended URL (http://extended.domain.com/personal)...but when I upload a new profile picture in my MySite... it prompts me for new credentials because it's trying to upload to the Default zone (http://my.domain.com).

I found the following thread that talks about this...but there wasn't any resolution:
http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/sharepointsocialcomputing/thread/ad6d96c2-0174-4603-9d9e-9d5018434259

What is the best practices when configuring a MySite in an extended web application? How can I fix the situation I'm encountering above?


P.S. I tried to change the MySite Host location (via SSP in the Central Administration)

Contact Details/MySite Profile Picture confusion

  

Hi all

 

Little bit confused, wonder if anyone can start to point me in the right direction.

We have a client, 2 MOSS 2007 farms, 2 SSPs.

The SSP on Farm B has only ever linked to mysite - never consumed services

At present, user image URLs are manually entered under the user profile.

On farm B's site collections, every one has 2 contact details web parts on the front page.

Some site collections retrieve the full dataset with picture - others might only get the name/job title, and in some cases, just a DOMAIN\username is shown (Although on other site collections it's correctly filled)

Can anyone shed any light on this?

 

Also -- if the farm consumed Farm A's details - would I still be able to keep a seperate search index from Farm B, but have things like the profile picture auto filled to people's profiles?

Thanks!




FBA users (ldap provider) don't have any user profile info when logged in.... what am I doing wrong

  
Sharepoint 2010, Claims authentication, FBA using ldap membership provider and role provider against Active Directory.  User profiles all imported just fine -- used the LDAP FBA provider hitting Active Directory to do so too.  whenever an FBA user logs in, it doesn't seem like sharepoint is picking up any user attributes.  targeted audiences don't work and MY SETTINGS is blank other than account and name.  If the same user logs in but through Active Directory, everything works just fine... targeted audiences, etc. Am I doing something wrong or can I not use the LDAP provider to authenticate to AD and also use the user profiles from Sharepoint?  GRRRRR.  All this to get around the Windows Authentication popup so I can customize a better looking logon experience.  Help?

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.

Creating service application w/ Requirement for MySite security profile to be maintained

  
Good Day; In Sharepoint 2010 Microsoft has given the developer the ability to create a service application that can have its own database and scale independantly from the rest of the Sharepoint farm.   I wish to create a Service Application that will store data much like a list, but I need to have the ability to use the same security trimming that the profiles offer via MySites.  We need to have the granularity at a user level that we can get in MySites but I do not wish to store this data in the Mysite collections.  Can the security granularity found in Mysites and Profiles be extended into a Service Application?  Any examples of others doing this or case studies around security that I can be pointed to would be most helpful. Cheers C

User Profile Synchronization: Name of user account / id uses wrong Netbios domain name?!

  
I've got an interesting situation: I've got a domain e.g. FOOBAR.FI. The Netbios domain is due to historical reasons BARFOO. When I use UPS to import accounts from the FOOBAR.FI domain, the user account names in SharePoint are given the id of FOOBAR\<useraccount>. This works so and so. Users are identified and My Sites is fine. However the organizational chart and other fields where you can specify another user don't work as they should. If the manager is specified from AD, the organizational chart works. However, if I edit a profile and check the manager, it's in the form of FOOBAR\<useraccount>. SharePoint highlights this and a tooltip says that the account cannot be found. As a suggestion, it gives BARFOO\<useraccount>, which is found from the AD. All fine and dandy, until you check the organizational chart, which turns out to be empty at this point. This is because in SharePoint there's no user with the name BARFOO\<useraccount>, but only those FOOBAR\<useraccount> users who've been imported from the AD. So bottom line question is: How does UPS select and set the user account name?

Sharepoint 2010: Editing My Profile:Choose Picture gives errors

User Profile Sync - Profile Picture Export to AD Problem

  
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.

MySite user profile site creation of My Content page is created as provisioned failed (unprovisioned

  
I've been trying to troubleshoot our User Profile Sync and have noticed the profile pages weren't getting updated with everything.  Most content was but things like memberships and the content tabs weren't.  I also saw this error in ULS: ProfSynch: Exception attempting to enumerate site 25a72070-4249-4698-ae99-c2a45d25b08e for ContentDB 23a6e3ef-6d56-4bde-825e-95c6924e2f91: Microsoft.Office.Server.UserProfiles.ProfileSynchronizationInternalException: ProfSynch: The site with ID 25a72070-4249-4698-ae99-c2a45d25b08e cannot be synchronized due to an unprovisioned root web.      at Microsoft.Office.Server.UserProfiles.SiteSynchronizerCollection.GetSynchInfoForSite(SqlDataReader dr, SynchInfo info)      at Microsoft.Office.Server.UserProfiles.SiteSynchronizerCollection.<get_Elements>d__0.MoveNext() I checked in the MySite database under the webs table and noticed all the My Content sites for all of our users had the flag column with the number 1315 in them - (meaning unprovisioned as the error above states).  Cross checking with the User Sync Profile database under the SiteSynch table I noticed all of the sites have NULL for the value under both the LastSynch and ChangeToken columns (The User Profile Service Application - User Profile to SharePoint Full Synchronization  timer job takes care of populating that).&

Programmatically Uploading User Profile Pictures using Powershell

  
I've reviewed other solutions for this, but I need clarification on something I'm not getting by reading other posts.  I'm using a powershell script to: 1)  Upload profile pictures on our network into the User Photos picture library in the My Site Host.  This works. 2) Associate a picture to a user profile.  I'm using this command ... $up.get_Item($picturePropertyName).Value = $PortraitUrl ... where $up is the user profile, $picturePropertyName is the property name of the url (PictureUrl), and $PortraitUrl is the full path to the picture uploaded in point 1 above.  This isn't working. 3) Eventually I will be executing the Update-SPProfileStore command to automatically resize the images once they've been added. Clarification required ... when I associate a picture to the user profile in step 2 above, is this what will automatically generate the 3 thumbnails for me (in the Profile Picture folder)?  Or ... do I have to manually create the 3 images?  Or ... will it associate the image I've provided and then the Update-SPProfileStore command will create the 3 resized images for me? I notice that when I associate a picture to a profile using the 'Edit my Profile' UI, it automatically creates the thumbnails for me.  I'm just not understanding how these pieces fit together.  I see some code snippets out there for r

User Profile Sync - Picture to thumbnailphoto export

  

Hi there,

I'm trying to get the staff pictures from My Sites to update the thumbnailphoto attribute in Active Directory.

I've setup the User Profile Sync, and I'm able to import and export to AD. However, I'm having a problem getting the Picture property to update the thumbnailphoto attribute. I can't find any errors, and it looks as though the sync is working to some extent because any previous information in thumbnailphoto is cleared after a sync.

If I look at what's going on in Forefront Identity Manager for 'DS_EXPORT', i can see that it has deleted the old value, and that the new value is empty.

Any suggestions are greatly appreciated!

Thanks,
Andy.
