People Picker changing the selected user names RRS feed

  • Question

  • We are seeing an odd problem in SharePoint 2007. We have 2 domains with users belonging to both, let's say domain1 and domain2. In the people picker, a user has an account in both domains, but when I choose the domain2 account, add then ok, it changes to the domain1 user. However, if I clear my IE9 client cache completely then try the operation again it resolved correctly to the user account in domain! Subsequently, though it goes back to resolving to the user in domain1. 

    Has anyone else seen this craziness happening anywhere else?

  • Hey Robin,

    Not entirely sure of what to make of this, but i'm interested in finding out the answer too. Have you guys rechecked your UPS settings? I'm not sure if you want to use both domains, but you can select which is synced with SharePoint. Also, i'm curious if you were to specify the domain by entering domain2\user in the people picker and then selecting the user if it will still revert back to domain1.
