Hi

We are running moss 2007 in our company, worked pretty much fine the last few years.

Yesterday, when I attempted to give one of our users permission.
After I type the users name, and I click "check names" it finds the user, I select the correct user. But then it says: "No Exact Match Found".

This used to work before, what has gone "horribly wrong" ?
PS. I am not exactly a rocket scientists when it comes to moss/sharepoint 2007.

Hi,
does this affect only one user? Perhaps there are two users in SharePoint with the same name but different SIDs.
Have you tried to enter the windows logon name (DOMAIN\TheUser) or the email address (youruser@yourdomain.com)?
That should normally work.

Hi

No, it is the same for all users. Tested it by attempting to give permission to 10 different users on some of our sites.

Tried domain\user and it is the same result.

Hi,
hm - can you have a look into Central Administration -> Shared Service Provider -> User profiles - if there is an issue with the connection to your AD?
Can you also check the Windows Event log of your SharePoint server for any errors?
Has something changed e.g. one domain controller has been replaced by another?
