Peoplepicker-distributionlistsearchdomains: Stsadm property (Office SharePoint Server)

PerformancePoint Server 2007

Updated: September 13, 2007

Applies To: Office SharePoint Server 2007

Updated: 2007-09-13


Restricts the search of a distribution list to a specific subset of domains.


stsadm -o setproperty

   -propertyname peoplepicker-distributionlistsearchdomains

   -propertyvalue <URL>

   [-url] <URL>

The syntax for the getproperty operation is:

stsadm -o getproperty

   -propertyname peoplepicker-distributionlistsearchdomains

   [-url] <URL>


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


The following table shows possible values.

Name Value


Gets or sets the name of the property.


A valid URL, such as http://server_name.


The domain name should be a Domain Name Service (DNS) name and should be separated by a semicolon. If no values are set, all trusted domains or the domains listed in the configuration are searched.

In the Example section, the property values (corp.fabrikam.com and dev.corp.fabriakm) are specified to conduct the search for a distribution list from corp.fabrikam.com and dev.corp.fabriakm.com and no other domain.


Typically, a path to the URL of the Web application, in the form http://server_name.

In the Example section, http://contoso is the name of the Web application that is affected.


Restrict a search distribution list to a subdomain

To restrict a search for a distribution list to only be corp.fabrikam.com and ntdev.corp.fabrikam.com, use the following syntax:

stsadm -o setproperty -url http://contoso-370 -pn peoplepicker-distributionlistsearchdomains -pv corp.fabrikam.com;dev.corp.fabrikam.com

To view the current setting for the distributionlistsearchdomains property, use the following syntax:

stsadm -o getproperty -pn peoplepicker-distributionlistsearchdomains
