MySite on portal - issues with IP address, DNS name refs, deleting

  Asked By: Marcella    Date: Oct 23    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 1444

We have a DNS name assigned to the IP address for our SharePoint
I am the Admin for the SharePoint site. We rushed out and all created
our own MySite. Some of us had a picture to upload. The user goes
to "My Picture" and uploads their picture. For some reason, when
clicking on the "My Picture" link, the IP address was referenced and
not the DNS name. No one paid any attention until one of our members
pointed out that this will cause an issue of broken links if we move
a new box. Ok. The solution is to get rid of the picture and start
over. Here's the rub. The reference to "Recent Documents" won't go
away. Even tho the document has been deleted, the link to it
to show up. So I deleted the "My Pictures" library for the user and
then deleted the "MySite". She goes back in and re-creates
her "MySite", everything seems to be going well. The link reference
from the deleted site is still present, when you click on the
are sent to the Error page that the referenced item no longer
Her MyPictures library is back. She uploads her picture and is
to use the DNS name. The picture that shows up on the profile has the
property of the DNS name. Yet the 'recent document' still references
the IP address picture. I just want to clean this stuff up. Get back
to "black dirt". How do I do this?

I believe that recent  documents links  are coming from the Search index. Perhaps
if you reindex all of your content the bad link  will be removed (just a guess).
Or, wait a while and the link will no longer be considered recent.

Reset Content Index and it should get better. If you can’t do that … do 3 full content indexes.
