We have a problem with our User Profile Sync. It has been working quite happily up until 2 months ago.
It is now not importing new members of groups to our Audiences.
In the Application Error Log I have:
"The management agent "MOSS-60283265-87b1-40da-aab0-
db32a59515b3" run profile "MOSS_DELTAIMPORT_f2f8255f- f7d2-49b8-82b5-c4b4dde3024b" completed a step with errors."
When I open the management agent to look at the errors I see completed-discovery-errors associated with the groups that are not updating the audiences.
The error is: reference-value-not-ldap-
conformant and each has an associated line number.
A bit of snooping led me to a ProfileData.ldf file on the server. When I go to the line numbers from the errors, each has an entry like:
There are 5 such entries out of 90,000 odd lines in the file. All the other lines have an AD user object with the object container e.g.:
Member: CN=test Profile\,OU\=Administration\,
So the question, what is causing the wierd GUID entry? I've searched AD for objects including deleted users with that GUID and nothing turns up.
Alternatively, is there some way I can adjust my import settings to force excluding whatever those entries are? (The filter currently excludes disabled accounts).
Thank you for pointing me in the right direction. For anyone else who comes across this issue, I eventually followed the instructions here: http://www.toddklindt.com/blog/Lists/Posts/Post.aspx?ID=300 to recreate the User Profile Service application and the sync is now working perfectly again.
