SharePoint 2010 Tip of the day : Don’t forget to do a full crawl to be able to search / find the freshly imported profiles (from your AD or other source)


I had a very hard time this morning configuring the profile synchronization in SharePoint 2010 (damn, that thing is really fragile) but now my profiles are imported correctly from Active Directory.
I used a People Core Search Result webpart in my site collection and I was unable to retrieve any profile regarding of the settings that I used … Turned out that a full crawl was needing to harvest all profiles

If someone can explain me what's behind SPS3 and the "site$$$people" stuff that have been found by the crawler, I would be more than glad to know !
