People picker with one-way trust between domain RRS feed

  • Question

  • Configured people picker to resolve user from trusted domain by setting password and setting searchadforest property. It's is not working, with bit of debuging in trusted dc we can find the search request coming from sharepoint, but trusted dc respond with invalid credential. I am using my domain user account to test before requsting for service account. Do we need any special permission on user account to query trusted ad thanks syd

  • Hi ,

     

    There is a limitation on the user  when can pick user from trusted domain .

    1.       When you set the searchadforeaset  property ,there is a command: STSADM.exe -o setproperty -pn peoplepicker-searchadforests -pv domain:DnsName,user,password-url http://webapp. The user and password represent the user and password for an account with access to the target forest or domain .

    2.       So you can have a test with the account you specify .Will it work now?

     

    For more information ,please refer to this site:

  • The other people picker question today was from someone who said he was using SPS 2010.

    Are you using SPS 2010 ?

    Moving in the meantime to Admin here as this isn't a General question

    P.S. I now see that you posted this same question direct to the Setup, Admin forum two hours before you posted this copy. NEVER post the same question more than once. It wastes peoples' time by causing parallel threads. I have deleted that duplicate. Do not do this again.
