SharePoint AD Import Users Mismatch RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello Team

    We have SharePoint 2013 Enterprise and SharePoint 2016 Enterprise on-prem and everything seems to be working properly. Over SharePoint 2013 Users profile showing 488 while over SharePoint 2016 its showing 450 users and more than 30 users missing. 

    We used same account to import users from AD. In SharePoint 2013 we are using FIM synchronization for sync connection which can be seen in Synchronization settings whereas in SharePoint 2016 FIM is deprecated hence we are using AD import connection for synchronization. Can someone help me on this to fix the issue ?

    Thanks Ranveer Katiyar

  • Hi Ranveer,

    Please verify the user profile profile each filter of SharePoint 2016 with SharePoint 2013 - I think some filter mismatch is there - may be in SharePoint 2016 some additional filter has been applied, that is the reason it might led to less users. And the second thing is - may be the mismatch users what you see are disable or inactive in AD which no more is needed in SharePoint 2016. We also did the migration from SharePoint 2013 to SharePoint 2016, there also we have seen users mismatch but everything was working fine.
