User Profile Import is not updating changes in Manager property of Active Directory

This issue has been identified as a bug in Profile Import and can be fixed by Installing Service Pack 1 of MOSS/WSS.

The reason behind this bug is that SharePoint Profile Import does not detect change in Manager property due to some weired reasons.

If you can not install service Pack 1 then you can fix it by implementing a workaround as follows:

  1. Open SharePoint Central Administration
  2. Navigate to your SharedService Provider e.g. SharedServices1
  3. Under User Profiles and MySites click User Profiles and Properties
  4. Under User Profile Properties , click View profile properties
  5. Click New Property
  6. Add ModifyTimeStamp property and map it to ModifyTimeStamp property of Active Directory.
  7. Click OK
  8. Perform Full Import of user profile
  9. Perform Full Crawl and you are done!

  1. We’re having a similar issue with other fields such as Title not updating. We are patched up to SP2 so I can’t understand it. Your idea of mapping the ModifiedTimeStamp to the profile properties sounds like a gem.

    Can I ask what type of field you specified when adding the property? Did you leave the default of ‘string’ or did you specify ‘date time’?
