People picker still showing users from old trusted domain RRS feed

  • Question

  • So we had a 2 way trust with another domain that we took out, and for awhile the users in the trusted domain seemed to be gone when looking up users, but now for who knows how long they are back. When I search for myself or someone that had an account in the old domain it shows up in people picker. The domain is gone along with the servers. How can we be seeing these old domain users if the domain is gone and trust doesn't exist? If I try to add one of these users I get an error stating "The user does not exist or is not unique."

    I tried a custom filter to try and remove those accounts which have an old email but that doesn't work either:

    stsadm -o setproperty -pn peoplepicker-search adcustomquery -pv (&(sn={0}*)(!mail=*irwin*)) -url http://urllink
    Error that I get: (!mail was unexpected at this time.

    Any ideas on this??? Why would we still see these users?

    Thanks,
    Dustin

  • Hi,

    have you tried to reset catalog and start a new profile import ?

  • I have not tried that. How do you reset the catalog and how would that reset the people picker search? I do not see any of these users in the profile search when I look at the imported users.

    Thanks.

  • Hi Iceman,

     

    This may caused by the SID being used to tattoo the resource within SharePoint.

     

    You can refer to this, hope it helps.

    Hmm.... How did SharePoint save these SIDs if we never imported the user objects from the other domain? I know for a fact we didn't add most of these users to any of the sites so they can't be local. (I know this because I was the only admin that modified permissions for sites) Does SP capture the SIDs on a previous people picker search in AD and store them somewhere?

    How do I go about fixing these if the domain doesn't exist anymore?
