April 2011 cumulative update and People Picker RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I have experienced a problem with People Picker in SHarePoint 2007 when installing the cumulative update for February 2011.  A similar issue is posted here: http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/sharepointadmin/thread/a6c416d2-2da5-42b8-b122-f3c20b56e001 (Moderator Note: where it says that it is known that this doesn't work after the Cumulative Updates for Dec 2010 and Feb 2011). Server rebuild is not an option for me.

    The People picker does not return results from domains with a one-way trust even if configured using the stsadm peoplepicker searchadforests command.

    In the SharePoint logs,

     04/28/2011 15:59:31.10 w3wp.exe (0x1358)                       0x1038  Windows SharePoint Services   General                                       72e7      Medium               Error in searching user 'cohe' : System.ComponentModel.Win32Exception: Access is denied     at Microsoft.SharePoint.Win32.SPNtDsApi32.SafeDirectoryServiceHandle.Bind(String domainControllerName, String dnsDomainName)     at Microsoft.SharePoint.Win32.SPNtDsApi32.TranslateUserName(String name, DS_NAME_FORMAT formatOffered, DS_NAME_FORMAT formatDesired)     at Microsoft.SharePoint.WebControls.PeopleEditor.SearchFromGC(SPActiveDirectoryDomain domain, String strFilter, String[] rgstrProp, Int32 nTimeout, Int32 nSizeLimit, SPUserCollection spUsers, ArrayList& rgResults)     at Microsoft.SharePoint.Utilities.SPUserUtility.SearchAgainstAD(String input, SPActiveDirectoryDomain domainController, SPPrincipalType scopes, SPUserCollection usersContainer, Int32 maxCount, String customQuery, String cust...  

     

    My question is does the April 2011 cumulative update that was just released resolve this problem. 

    thanks a lot, mark

  • Will do.  Thanks.

    The April 2011 Cumulative Update did fix the people picker functionality that was broke as part of the February 2011 cumulative update.

  • Mark, please in future just stick to a single query for a single question.

    Here you both posted a question about this in an existing thread and also posted this new thread.

    That - just like posting the same question to two different forums - leads to parallel threads. Parallel threads waste forum members' time.

    So by all means decide to add a question to a still open thread (as that one was) but do not then also start a new thread for the same issue.
