Active Directory Contact import to MOSS 2007?
Greetings - I'm looking for a quick clarification. Does MOSS 2007 import both AD users AND Active Directory contacts? I seem to be having issues seeing / importing any contacts created in Active Directory. In order to see these in MOSS do we need to create them as users instead of contacts? I can't seem to recall....thank you for any assistance. Just seeking clarification. Thank you Jason

Has to be ad users / AD groups. AD contacts will only show up in the contacts exist only so they can show up in the Address Book/GAL HTH Nagesh S Days and years do not mean anything to me. Moments shared are frozen in their time frame. Distance or time never fades them for me. I cherish them like my life. I have never let them sleep alone. Sachi

Hi Jason, Thanks to share your post in this forum. As is post here, there are some solutions that have been post: The following steps need to be followed to configure import of user profiles from Active Directory Scenario-1 – All users are in the current domain. 1. Go to User Profile and Properties under Shared Services Administration. 2. Click on configure profile import link. Select current domain as the profile data source. 3. Make sure default access account is specified and is valid. 4. Run full import or incremental report. Scenario-2 – Users are scattered into multiple domains or other data sources. 1. Go to User Profile and Properties under shared services administration. 2. Click on Import New Connection. Add a new connection for each of the data sources where you users are located. Delete any unwanted connections that might already be there. 3. Configure the import as mentioned above and make sure that Custom source is selected. 4. Run the full import or incremental import. Hope this could help you! Leo
