I have problems with getting the pictures from Active Directory (Field "thumbnail Photo") into my Sharepoint User Profile Store and displaying it in the MySites.
Profile Synchronization is working fine, the field Picture is mapped to thumbnailPhoto.
Then for finishing the process I execute the following powershell command:
Update-SPProfilePhotoStore -CreateThumbnailsForImportedPhotos 1 -MySiteHostLocation "http://mysite.vz.ch/my"
I execute this command under the user context from the account which has all the necessary AD-Rights. I do this with "start-job -Credentials $cred -ScriptBlock $sb" where -Credentials for the AD Sync Account and $sb for the above Powershell Script (Update-SPProfile....).
For this I had to give rights to the sync account on the user profile service application (administrator and permission button, I know). Also I had to give "db-owner"rights on the Configuration Database and also on the MySite Database for this sync account.
I found this out via ULSLogViewer.
Now it is working as far that the scripts enumerates all user profiles and tries to process the images. But in ULSLogViewer I have the following error message:
"Error processing the photo URL User Photos/Profile Pictures/0c37852b-34d0-418e-91c6-2ac25af4be5b_652.jpg for user ZH01\BEr: System.U
