create user profiles in the user information list based on Active Directory entries
Posted on 2008-10-09
i am working on a WSS 3.0 site (not MOSS), which has a dedicated AD setup for authentication,
created some AD security Groups and mapped it one on one to a sharepoint group.
by doing this, users who are added to the AD group are authenticated and can get onto the sharepoint site, however their user profiles (User Information List) do not exist. i believe this is the default sharepoint behaviour.
i would like to find out if there is a way to create user information list entries based on the AD user profile.
