Name showing as DOMAIN\UserName

  • Name showing as DOMAIN\UserName Sam

    My name seems to be appearing as DOMAIN\UserName for sites that I create (and sometimes sites that others have created as well) rather than Forename Surname, why is this happening? It is on an Active Directory domain.

    If I try to set up synchronization (Application Management > Manage service applications > User Profile Service Application > Configure Synchronization Connections > Create New Connection) I get an error:

    Cannot navigate to the requested page while User Profile Synchronization is running. Please wait for the current Synchronization run to finish.

    There are no timer jobs running at the time, plus I tried a reboot and got the same error message.

    I also try to start Forefront Identity Manager Service and it stops straight away (domain account or local system account):

    The Forefront Identity Manager Service service on Local Computer started and then stopped. Some services stop automatically if they are not in use by other services or programs.

    Any ideas?

    Edit:
    User Profile Synchronization Service status is 'Stopped', but when I click 'Start' it asks for a password, where the account is 'NT AUTHORITY\NETWORK SERVICE' (and can't be changed).

    Edit 2:
    Using stsadm -o sync -listolddatabases 0 I get:

    User Profile Application 'User Profile Service Application' - Partition '0c37852
    b-34d0-418e-91c6-2ac25af4be5b'
    ID: d3c78ad7-11a5-403a-82c8-5225b410f199  Synchronized: 5/24/2010 11:00:01 AM
    ID: 11503409-d60d-437f-bcea-72fe4f9cf156  Synchronized: 5/20/2010 2:00:00 PM
    

    stsadm -o sync -deleteolddatabases 0 results in a failure. Checked the log file and there are a lot of entries regarding stsadmin, a few exceptions (access denied) even though I am both a server administrator and a farm administrator (everything is all and the same server as it is for testing). Log file is plain text, isn't there an easier way to view/query it rather than use notepad?

  • I think you have two issues; the display name issue on the site and the user profile sync issues you mentioned.

    Since Foundation doesn't have centralized user profiles, it uses a localized User Information list. With Server, this is still in place and there are some timer jobs that synchronize the information between the central profiles and the site collections. I have seen this issue come up a few times when there was something preventing a site from updating.

    You can run the following stsadm commands to validate and repair.

    stsadm -o sync -listolddatabases 0

    If there are any sites returned, then they are currently not updating. You can run the following command to reset them so that they will run during the next job (within 2 hours).

    stsadm -o sync -deleteolddatabases 0

    To setup the sync with AD, the configuration needs to be configured. Here is a link that should hopefully help. http://blogs.msdn.com/b/opal/archive/2009/11/19/user-profile-sync-setup-in-sharepoint-server-2010-beta.aspx
