My Active directory on 2008 server won't sync users to Sharepoint foundation 2010.

I create user in the active directory and they don't show in sharepoint.
Last week everything worked fine.

How do I get them working again.

Thank you

John

Maybe something like this?

The AD Server the computer was connecting to was low on virtual RAM – As a result, when the query from SharePoint kicked off, it would run out of virtual memory, spaz out, throw this old chestnut and drop SharePoint’s connection…

Hi John,
Sharepoint Foundation does not have User profile synchronization as mentioned in the other post.
What do you mean with synch? The user can not be selected through people picker?
Thanks.

Rainer-

After I add a new user to active directory.
They do not show up as a user in sharepoint.
and
If I modify a user in active directory, like add an email address that will not come across either.

It was working at one point then quit.

The changes, like editing an email address, won't come over by default with SharePoint foundation.  They will show up on new sites, but not sites where the user already exists.  

How many domain controllers do you have?  How many domains/forests?  Has anyone been messing with the PeoplePicker controls using STSADM?
