user profile sync not importing AD groups

  Asked By: Naman    Date: Sep 18    Category: MOSS    Views: 6581

I had configured User Profile Sync on my server farm and the users are
getting imported, but the AD groups are not getting imported.

I could successfully create a connection to the AD and populate containers
and start the incremental crawl. The issue lies with importing AD groups
and I am able to successfully search for users in the manage user profile
screen in central admin

Any inputs/pointers are appreciated.

This seems to be a common issue. Here's an MSDN thread on it,

I was on call with MS support for 3 hrs and they are able to replicate the
issue. I was asked to install Cumulative updates ( June) and reconfigure
User Profile Service Application.

The issue is still open but we are able to see the AD groups in the database
"Profile DB" but not on the "Manage User Profiles"

I was having an issue with the User Profile Sync not importing users from
Active Directory. I tried configuring the connection to point to different
containers, but nothing seemed to work. Out of desperation I had one of the
domain admins enter their domain credentials, and then try to run the
profile sync. I was surprised that the import succeeded. So it has me
wondering what level of permissions the User Profile Sync account needs.
Using a domain admin account is not an option, but was just a test to see if
the issue was permissions related. I'm going to do some more testing
tomorrow to see if i can find anything else.
