Mutiple User Conflict : User changes after clicking ok in People Picker/Address book RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I am trying to add a specific user on a SharePoint Site (2007). While searching for that user in Address book by"Name" say "User A", its showing the correct user. But when i add that user by clicking OK, the user changes to say "User B". When searching the user by domain\username (for User A), it only shows two occurrences of "User B".

    UserB does exist. There is only a single letter difference between both of their usernames. E.g : For UserA- domain\samename1, For UserB-domain\samename

    Note: This issue does not occur when i try this on a different server hosted Site with same AD.
    Also, i have tried both full and incremental import of user profiles in SSP.

    Any help would be much appreciated.

  • The problem was in the details. Old data was conflicting with new one. I checked in /_catalogs/users/simple.aspx and i deleted both the users from it. After this, i tried adding again and this time it worked.
