User profile problems after samaccount renaming RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi.

    Please help me to solve my next issue.

    After AD user renaming (made changes in samaccountname) sharepoint sometimes can't find user profile. I make user migration via stsadm -o migrateuser but it doesn't help.

    In powershell i can find user profile with both (old and new) samaccountnames and receive same profile. In Central Administration when i try to change user profile i see the next

    A.Golkov it's a old samaccount name.

    In Sharpeoint farm there are 4 servers except Database (2 fronted web and 2 service applications server )  Both Service application servers run User Profile Service. But only one server running User profile synchronization service.

  • Hi Sidorenko,

    When you run stsadm -o migrateuser, make sure you are using Farm account.

    And after running the stsadm command, please do a user profile full sync, then check again, compare the result.

    If this issue still exists, you can check the user information in SQL side, then  edit it in SQL side.

    There is a useful article, please take a look at:
