If there is no Windows Internet Name Service (WINS) server in the network, a name resolution error occurs when you start the User Profile Synchronization service.
Consider the following scenario. An export in SharePoint Server 2010 performs unsuccessfully. However, when Forefront Identity Manager (FIM) tries to perform the export again, the export succeeds. In this scenario, certain user and group memberships are not updated.
This hotfix can help administrators to speed up user profile synchronization. By using this hotfix, administrators can create a PowerShell script for automatic and scripted deployments. This script configures the UsersOnly or the SkipBDClmport User Profile Service Application (UPA) flags.
A user name is not updated in a site user information list when the Windows SharePoint service runs on SharePoint farms that use forms-based authentication.
Consider the following scenario. You set a SharePoint group as the target audience of a list item or as a web part. However, the display name of this SharePoint group is a prefix of another SharePoint group. In this scenario, the Audience Picker does not resolve the SharePoint group that was set as the target audience. Therefore, you must fix the unresolved group manually.
As a profile administrator, you cannot upgrade SharePoint 2007 to SharePoint 2010 if you remove the build-in "PS-Section-CustomProperties" section property.
Profile synchronization cannot complete if the Microsoft SQL server connection fails while a validation file is created. Additionally, this validation file is overwritten by the later run-steps.
My Site Cleanup Job does not work in the federated User Profile Service Application scenario. Therefore, when the owner of a site leaves, the orphaned personal site is not assigned to a manager or is not removed.
Audience compilation cannot complete when you run profile synchronization by using User Profile Service Application (UPA).
