Prevent Navigation to MySite

    Question

  • Hey Gang,

    I'm having a bit of an issue with MySites. The client I'm working for has asked to disable MySite functionality which I have. However, when users click the name of a person they get sent to some sort of MySite rather than just the user information page for the specific user.

    A user will have this link when you hover over their name (i.e. http://[SITE_NAME]/_layouts/userdisp.aspx?ID=137) but when you click the link it sends them to MySite (http://[SITE_NAME]:8888/Person.aspx?accountname=....). Is there any way to stop this redirection so that users only get sent to the User Information page? I tried going to the user profile in the SSP and managing their personal page but it says they haven't created one. I'm not sure what the next step is. Thanks for any help!

  • Hi Aleem,

     

    The users would redirected to MySite Host (http://[MYSITE_HOST_URL]/_layouts/Person.aspx?accountname=[USER_NAME]) if he had a profile in the SSP.

     

    There are two ways to stop the redirection:

    1.    Deleted user profile in SSP.

    2.    Uninstalled MySite feature via command: %BIN_FOLDER%\STSADM -o uninstallfeature -filename %FEATURE_FOLDER%\MySite\feature.xml

    By default: %BIN_FOLDER% located in C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\12\BIN\

    %FEATURE_FOLDER% located in C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\12\TEMPLATE\FEATURES\

     

    You could use either way to achieve your goal.

     

    Let me know if you need further information.
