The syntax for the getproperty operation is:

NoteNote:
You can substitute -pn for -propertyname and -pv for -propertyvalue.

Gets or sets the name of the property.

propertyvalue

If you have ten Active Directory directories to search and you do not want to let the user to wait too long, you can configure the timeout to be ten seconds per Active Directory. To do this, use the following syntax:

stsadm -o setproperty -pn peoplepicker-activedirectorysearchtimeout –pv 10
