Permits a user to search from a second one-way trusted forest or domain.
All servers in a farm need to be within one domain. Users in the forest that the server is in (that is, a resource forest) are displayed automatically. Forests that have at least a one-way trust to that forest can be searched for users to add.
When a Web application uses Windows authentication, People Picker searches all two-way trusted forests and all two-way trusted domains. However, if you want to search from a one-way trusted forest or a one-way trusted domain, you must run the setapppassword operation, and then run the peoplepicker-searchadforests property.
The peoplepicker-searchadforests property allows you to search multiple values when users are selected. You also can add multiple forests, domains, accounts, and even specific property searches.
|By default, Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 talks to the domain controller for the domain in which Office SharePoint Server 2007 was installed and all trusted domains for two-way trusted domains.|
|When using this property, there might be a performance latency in the People Picker, and this latency will be in proportion to the latency in the one-way relationship to the Active Directory forest.|
The syntax for the setproperty operation is:
stsadm -o setproperty
-propertyvalue <valid list of forests or domains>
The syntax for the getproperty operation is:
stsadm -o getproperty
|You can substitute -pn for -propertyname and -pv for -propertyvalue.|
The following table shows possible values.
Gets or sets the name of the property.
A valid list of forests or domains. The format of the list of forests or domains value includes the following:
Typically, a path to the URL of the Web application, in the form http://server_name.
To enumerate a list of users by using People Picker from a second forest or domain, use the following syntax:
stsadm –o setproperty –pn peoplepicker-searchadforests –pv <list of forests or domains> -url <WebApp>
To specify the user name and password from a one-way trust, so that People Picker can look up this information, use the following syntax:
stsadm -o setproperty -url http://<server:port> -pn peoplepicker-searchadforests -pv "forest:contoso.corp.com,<LoginName>,<Password>;domain:bar.contoso.corp.com,<LoginName>,<Password>"
