Office 2007

Updated: September 13, 2007

Applies To: Office SharePoint Server 2007

Updated: 2007-09-13

Site administrators and other users use the People Picker Web control to select people and groups when assigning permissions. When information about users is located on multiple forests, additional steps might be necessary to ensure that all people and groups are available from this Web control. You are permitted to select users only on the domain that Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 is installed.

The peoplepicker properties are part of the setproperty and getproperty operations. The syntax for the setproperty operation is:

stsadm -o setproperty

   -propertyname <property name>

   -propertyvalue <property value>

   [-url] <URL>

The syntax for the getproperty operation is:

stsadm -o getproperty

   -propertyname <property name>

   [-url] <URL>

NoteNote:

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

The following table describes the peoplepicker properties.
