Dear EE experts,

We would like to ask for tech support on how to add photos into AD (Active Directory), in Windows Server 2008? Because we're connecting our SharePoint to our AD, then everytime our SharePoint update the user profile, from the AD connection, the link of the photo that we put is always lost. It's because there's no photo link from the AD itself.

We are using MOSS 2007, Windows Server 2008, & Exchange Server 2007.

Kindly advise.

Thank you!

I'd seen some folks use a free programa to upload photos to AD   http://www.codetwo.com/freeware/active-directory-photos/?sts=1941

http://www.cjwdev.co.uk/Software/ADPhotoEdit/Info.html   > haven't tested this but have used some of his other stuff and it is usually good.  You can pull from thumbnailPhoto.

If you search you will see folks using the extension attributes too.

Thanks

Mike

Hi there Mike!

We've found the second one, downloaded and try to upload one photo. It upload successfully, then from our MOSS 2007 - SharedServices Properties -> View Profile Properties, we mapped  the 'Picture' to thumbnailPhoto.

Then what would be the next step? How can we see the uploaded photo to the AD?
Or do we need to install that program into the server or not necessarily?

Please advise.

Thank you!

@Mike, what should we do next after we select photo for each user? Where does the photo goes after it has uploaded successfully? We can't see it from our AD yet... Do we need to wait until tomorrow, until it replicate it system again?

Hope to hear again soon...
