WSS & MOSS Profile Down-Sync

  Asked By: Reuben    Date: Apr 09    Category: MOSS    Views: 1060

When assigning security at site / site-collection level, the user
profile is copied from MySites into the site-collection which I
believe is called WSS profile. At a later time when MySites profile is
updated, either through import or manually, then this info is meant to
be copied across the the WSS profile by a timer job. It is controlled
by STSADM -o sync operation. This profile is shown on 'My Settings'

This does not seem to be working. I understand that the user is meant
to be active but still for active users it does not seem to be working.

How do I get it to work?

Have you scheduled an import  in the SSP?

Yes using switches on [STSADM -o sync] and also checked the timer  job
status in Central Admin and they are running. A number of our users
are active  on the site  but everyone's WSS profile  does not seem to update.

Sorry in my previous email I should have added..

The import  of AD profile  into profile DB in SSP is working  fine but
the problem is that from profile DB they do not get copied to WSS
profile, for example, when I select [My Settings] from Welcome menu.
