  • Set-SPUser -SyncFromAD ,Is this property work from SharePoint 2016 using Microsoft Identity Management server instead of Active Directory Import

  • Hi Rajack,
    Thanks for sharing the information,
    we are seeing an issue like when the AD Sync is performed on the scheduled monthly activity, we see the display name and email is changing, like Praveen Nal to userid C11xxxx and the email id is showing nothing.
    Kindly Advise is there any mappings i need to set.


    • Chances are: The “Preferred Name” property is set to UserID field and AD account’s E-mail property is blank!
