Peoplepicker Browse works, Check Names doesn't. RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am attempting to populate a list field with an AD Security Group. The WFE is in a different domain than the SecGroup I'm trying to add. I've configured setapppassword and peoplepicker-searchadforests, which has resulted in the groups I'm trying to select appearing in peoplepicker when I try to located them with the Browse option. After I select them, however, and hit OK, the list returns from posting with a "No exact match was found." error under the SecGroup field. I'm assuming additional authentication needs to be set up somewhere for Check Names, but I'm not sure where.

  • Does this happen across multiple or all site collections? Or does it only occur with specific sites?

    Also, what does the trust relationship between these domains looks like? Is there a one-way trust involved? If so, you may also want to review and use the Peoplepicker-searchadforests command found here: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc263460(office.12).aspx
