SharePoint 2010 multi tenancy -> People picker not working

Hi All,

We build a SharePoint 2010 (foundation) multi-tenant environment. And we had some problems with the people picker.

In our code we set the Set-SPSiteSubscriptionConfig -UserAccountDirectoryPath, but still the people picker would not work properly. Why?!!?
After some digging into the farm settings my colleague found the solution. By entering the following powershell:


now the webapplication is set

This will give the next result:

SearchActiveDirectoryDomains : {}

ActiveDirectoryCustomQuery :

ActiveDirectoryCustomFilter :

OnlySearchWithinSiteCollection : False

PeopleEditorOnlyResolveWithinSiteCollection : False

DistributionListSearchDomains : {}

ActiveDirectorySearchTimeout : 00:00:30

NoWindowsAccountsForNonWindowsAuthenticationMode : True

ServiceAccountDirectoryPaths : {}

ReferralChasingOption : All

ActiveDirectoryRestrictIsolatedNameLevel : False

AllowLocalAccount : True

ShowUserInfoListSuggestionsInClaimsMode : True

UpgradedPersistedProperties : {}

As you can see the setting ReferralChasingOption is set to “All”, but this is not completely true…. After reapply the ReferralChasingOption All setting the people worked like charm!

Have fun!
