For many, User Profile Services creates a feeling of both excitement and fear. The force behind SharePoint’s user profiles, audiences, MySites, social tags, and more—User Profile Services is both complicated to setup and historically unforgiving when configuration mistakes are made. In this session we’ll discuss system requirements for User Profile Services, important changes between SharePoint 2010 and 2013, perform a bulk import of user photos into Active Directory, and provision User Profile Services with Active Directory Import using SharePoint 2013. Additionally, we’ll cover requirements and configuration for SharePoint Search, to ensure user profiles are correctly crawled, indexed, and available through SharePoint’s search capabilities.
