    Question : User has changed his name in the active directory and wants see his mysite with the new URL.

    Can we follow the steps given below:
    ○ Take the backup of the existing site collection (Stsadm -o export)
    ○ Goto SSP -> User profile -> remove Personal site URL -> Save
    ○ Ask her to click on the "Mysite" Link
    ○ New site collection will be created for her
    ○ Import the old collection content (Stsadm -o import)
    ○ you may need to change the site title of the new site collection after the import.

  • I did exactly as you suggested and it worked in my test environment. So I guess you have the right approach. It was not production so you should check with your user before making any changes.

    I hope this helps :)

  • User Steven has the Active Directory account however his profile is not yet populated into SSP User profiles. NT Authenticated users have the access permission on "Shared Documents - Document Library". So, will Steven be able to access the "Shared Documents"? I guess, IIS will authenticate the user Steven to access the "Shared Documents" and SharePoint will authorize the user to View the items in "Shared Documents", is that right?

These changes were not transferred into SharePoint and I had a problem in one of my web parts which uses the SPUser object to get the users email address. Is there a way to configure SharePoint 2007 to synchronise such data automatically? ** Update ** I changed my email address in AD and started a full profile import.

Also, my customer wants SharePoint to be themed to match her... is the customer specific file swap. My customer could create a new site for each of her customers, which would take care of almost everything, except that when she creates the new site, she'll need to download the masterpage from the root site and then upload it to the daughter site for the theme to apply across the board. That might be too much administration for her. If we didn't make a subsite
