How to Return PeoplePicker to Original Functionality - search AD? RRS feed

  • Question

  •  In the peoplepicker dialog boxes we were getting accounts from trusted domains (this is the default behavior) so we used stsadm to set the Peoplepicker-onlysearchwithinsitecollection propert to "YES" which limits the search to the users listed in that site collection. This was initially undesirable because there were users with accounts in multiple domains which resulted in multiple results for those particular users.

    We now want to revert back to that deafult functionality of searching AD. However, after removing the property value from Peoplepicker-onlysearchwithinsitecollection, the search still only returns users that are listed in the site collection. I have verified by using stsadm -o getproperty that the Peoplepicker-onlysearchwithinsitecollection does not exist any longer.

    I have reset IIS, restarted the Moss WFE (houses search and index), re-crawled content sources, re imported user profiles, none of which reverted the people picker back to searching AD  for users.

    Anyone have any ideas?
