Contact Details/MySite Profile Picture confusion

Posted By:      Posted Date: May 22, 2011    Points: 0   Category :C#
 

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!

Extended MySite: Profile picture uploading to the wrong zone.

  
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)

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

The Contact Details Web Part image is limited to a width of 100px.  The images for users that I have added to Sharepoint are 140px x 140px, so the right hand side 40px are cut off the image.  Is there an easy way to increase this, as it doesn't seem to be controled by a style, Cheers Dan

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).&

Contact Details web parts on pages won't show any more than 7 pictures

  

Hi,

For each new person that is added to a company department, we add a contact details webpart and their picture to the departmental page. We can't seem to add any more than that, the contact details webpart and their name shows up, but no picture. The other 7 pictures do continue to show up. Is there a limitation on the contact details webpart?

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.

 


Changed DNS, IIS mappings and AAM for mysite - "My News feed,profile,content" okay but MySite link s

  

Hi,

Sharepoint 2010 enterprise, I created a DNS entry and AAM for MySite - qnetmysite.company.local and all worked okay, then the customer wanted to change the URL used to access my site to "myqnet" so we deleted the DNS entry and recreated a new one. I changed the bindings in IIS and AAM to point to "myqnet.company.local". I can enter http://myqnet.company.local" and navigate to My News feed, My Profile, My content but when I try to navigate to MYSite the URL it takes me to is the old URL qnetmysite.company.local and internet explorer of course can't find the site. I have done an IIS reset, flushed the DNS on the local PC, when I mouse over the MySite link I can see the wrong URL.

Please can somebody help me?

 


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.

http://blogs.msdn.com/b/russmax/archive/2010/02/27/sharepoint-2010-profile-picture-property-101.aspx?PageIndex=1#comments 

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?

**Edit**

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.
