SharePoint - listolddatabases 0 continues to return 1/1/0001 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hey everyone!

    Hope you've all been well.

    Came across an issue in 2013 where I noticed that the "created by" field wasn't showing emails in a decent amount of users. (have to go into the list settings and change the created by field to show work email). However, in the UPSA they did have emails in their profiles.

    I knew this wasn't an AD --> SP issue but a UPSA --> site collection issue.

    I ran the stsadm.exe -o sync -listolddatabases 0

    and saw a list of dbs with the 1/1/0001 date. (weird)

    I then ran the stsadm.exe -sync -deleteolddatabases 0

    then proceeded to go into the central admin and run the "User Profile Service Application Proxy - User Profile to SharePoint Full Synchronization" timer job.

    After running the job I was able to see the emails populate on the list, however when I went back to run the 
    stsadm.exe -o sync -listolddatabases 0 to double check that the dates updated.

    I still saw the databases with 1/1/0001 date. Does it take time to update? It should show today's date if Im understanding this correctly.
