Users are not detecting in peoplepicker?

  Asked By: Bennie    Date: Apr 07    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 4347

We have implemented FBA using ADAM successfully. User are able to login
on ADAM FBA site.

Then we have extended another web application for users mysite

We have imported ADAM user without any problem. But whenever we try to
add user manually using "adammembership:user1" as account name, it
gives us error "No Exact match was found". We also try to add user
in "personalized service permission" to allow user to access their
mysite, but getting same error i.e. "No exact match was found.". I try
to search all the adam user in people picker, but no adam record are
populating however all other user are appearing in people picker search.

I checked Central Admin config also, seems everything is ok. I added
people picker in central admin config mentioned below

<clear />
<add key="ADAMMembership" value="%" />

I tried with following also, but no luck.
<add key="ADAMMembership" value="*" />

here is my Membership provider string
<membership defaultProvider="ADAMMembership">
<add name="ADAMMembership"
Microsoft.Office.Server, Version=, Culture=neutral,
otherRequiredUserAttributes="sn,givenname,cn" />

Please let me know what wrong we are doing?

Did you adjust the Mysite personalization permissions in the Shared Services
administrative site? By default you need to permissions to be able to create
and use a MySite. Those permissions are given to NTAuthority/authenticated
users, which covers everyone except FBA authenticated users.

I checcked the ntauthority/authenticated users  are there in MySite
personalization permission. But whenever I try to add  ADD FBA user,
it wont detect? Surprisingly whenever I able to add SQL FBA user.

Is this because of zone(extranet/custom)? Here is my alternate access

Internal URL - Zone - Publc URL for Zone
http://mossportal - Default - http://mossportal
http://portal.domain.com" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">http://portal.domain.com - Intranet - http://portal.domain.com" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">http://portal.domain.com
http://SqlFba.domain.com" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">http://SqlFba.domain.com - Internet - http://SqlFba.domain.com" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">http://SqlFba.domain.com
http://AdamMySite.domain.com - Custom - http//AdamMySite.domain.com
http://AdamUser.domain.com" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">http://AdamUser.domain.com - Extranet - http://AdamUser.domain.com" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">http://AdamUser.domain.com

FYI, Adammysite.domain.com url available to some limited users, where
Adamuser.domain.com is available to non-employee. I try to detect both
the adam  site user  but not able to detect, again I am able to detect
SQL FBA users.

However I am able to import in ssp, but if I try to add user as adam
user, it wont detect as I am trying to do in MySite Personalization.

Is the custom zone actually a ZONE or just an alternate access  mapping? If its
just an AAM then that would be the problem. You need to have a web.config file
with the membership  and role provider  settings in it for the people  picker to
work correctly. You only get that if you extend to a full zone.

Also, you misunderstand me about ntauthority/authenticated users. That's the
default group that gives users  the ability to create a MySite. FBA users
(including add  FBA users) are NOT members of that group. You need to add the
membership/role provider entries to the SSP site  and add a suitable group with
the same permissions as ntauthority/authenticated users for MySites to work for
FBA users.

did you modify the web.config for all zones, all web  apps? if you have an
extended zone, you'll need to modify that web.config as well (if you want to use
people picker  in that zone)
