    Hi, i also have the 2013 version running, but when i go to my site it says: Your My Site experience is on its way!

    We’re in the middle of getting your brand new My Site experience set up.
    It may take a little while, but in the meantime you can edit your profile or change your photo.

    Check to see whether things are up-and-running.

    Is it the same for you? What im missing, all services are running, import from AD work….

    Have you been able to get this to work when mapping thumbnailPhoto attribute to the Picture property. I get the images to import from AD.

    …Sorry I was trying to say I can’t get the images to show in Profiles after the import even if I add a mapped property for Picture to thumbnailPhoto.

    Help, any luck with allowing me to upload a photo from manage user profiles -> edit user profile.
    I get “An unrecoverable error has occurred. Please contact your system administrator.” when I try to do this.

    I did a successful ad import in sharepoint2013.

    I am trying to use my old Sharepoint 2007 LDAP filter for the AD import on my new Sharepoint 2013 setup. Using (&(objectCategory=Person)(objectClass=User)(!userAccountControl:1.2.840.113556.1.4.803:=2)(mail=*ca)(sn=*)(department=*)(!(!givenName=*))) but it doesn’t seem to be excluding disabled users or service accounts. Any ideas on why an known working LDAP query would take no effect in the SP2013 environment? For what it’s worth the import connection was setup without the LDAP filter initially, I have just come in and am trying to add it. I have run both an incremental and fill synchronization a few times but still the profile exist and I see nothing listed under “profiles excluded from import”.

    Thanks

    When setting up the server like this… before you make any sharepoint settings… should the Forefront Identity Manager Service and the the Forefront Identity Manager Synchronization Service be running? or is SharePoint somehow handling that.
    Having a hell of a time getting this figured out on our test 2013 setup. Seems like every time we turn around the FIM services have switched to “Disabled”

    I followed the steps described here, but my full sync is not starting. I’m not getting any error message either. Any idea as to why?

    I’ve seen this happen before, and it was fixed by a server reboot. I imagine that a Timer reset and/or IISReset would do the trick.
