Users are not validating in people picker using ADAM?

  Asked By: Traci    Date: Aug 28    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 1808

I have created a site using extended web application as Form based
authentication using ADAM. Just for the Information I have already
implemented two type of sites are working using windows authentication
(ADS) and Sql Server Authentication (FBA). Both are working without
any problem.

In central ADmin - Share Service Provider - VIew User profile, Here I
can add and populate Windows User and SQL User using people picker,
but whenever I try to add ADAM users, it is not validating nor even
pupulating in People Picker. SUprisingly adam users are
validating/populating in Site Collection Administrator.

I have already ADAM Provider in Central Admin web.config.

Please let me know what I am missing here?

Microsoft.Office.Server, Version=, Culture=neutral,
otherRequiredUserAttributes="sn,givenname,cn" />

One more thing, I am using 2 front end servers. As 2nd front end web
server is mirror of 1st Front server  sharepoint sites, so do I need
to install ADAM on 2nd Front end Server also?

I had to add  the information  for ADAM into the web.config for CA. I
also added it into the web.config for the SSP.

Also, for the PeoplePicker to work correctly, I had to add the line:
<add key="<ADAM FBA membership name>" value="*" />

in all the web.config's that I put the ADAM information.

Also, I only got ADAM authentication  to work when I extended  the
original web  app using the Extranet Zone.
