  • We are in the process of syncing photos from SharePoint to AD. however the AD attribute size limit is an issue. I belike anything over 10 kb doesn't sync. Any ideas around this?

  • we have run this company and a new sync and it doesn't seem to have changed the behavior at all. In AD we see this file is to large under the property.

  • Hi,

    I recommend to use a smaller photo for a test to see if the sync could work for narrowing down the issue scope.

    If the sync works with smaller photo, then the size would be an issue. You need to re-set the photo in SharePoint to make it work.

    If the sync does work with smaller ones, then there might be some other issue affecting this.

    We need to check ULS log for further research.

    Best Regards,
