Sharepoint synchronisation to Active Directory

Hi all,

I have a sharepoint 2013 server setup, and we want user's photo to sync from sharepoint into active directory.

We have setup an AD connection and everything seems to sync fine apart from the photos. When looking in the event viewer we are getting event ID 6100, and in the miis client, we are getting "permissions issue - insufficient rights to perform the operation"

The synchronisation account has the following permission on the domain:

Read
Replication Synchronisation
Relicating Directory Changes
Create all child objects
Read thumbnailPhoto
Write thumbnailPhoto

Any ideas?

Thanks.

I assume you mean the account, you defined in the AD connection definition, right?

Have you checked for a example user, if the permission is propagated to the user?
Keep in mind, that membership of Domain or Org-Admin group braks the inheritage of permissions in AD.

Yes the account defined in the AD connection. Oh you may be onto something there. Do I simply just add the permissions on the security tab of the admin privileged user?

The replicate permissions are set on the AD root folder as well as possibly on the configuration folder.

The other permissions are set on the container, where your users reside (to be inherited)
And be sure, the permissions are inherited... (see the security properties of an example user)

Some of the privileged users were indeed not inheriting permissions. I have enabled inheritance on these and they seem to be working. There are a few accounts however which are not synching the pictures back to AD and they have permission inheritance enabled.

Thanks.

Could do with a bit more help on one or two users which aren't working, but I'll open another topic for that one.
