Still at Melbourne Airport waiting for my flight to Perth (delayed from 8:30pm to 11:00pm). Figured I would use the time productively to work on a job that I’ve had on my backlog for a few weeks – configure user profile synchronisation between Active Directory and SharePoint 2010.
I’ve been using two resources as my guide:
The SharePoint Dev Wiki is more of a rough and ready guide that assumes that you aren’t really shooting for a super secure configuration. The TechNet article assumes that you are setting this thing up for use by the CIA. Neither was true for me – I wanted something that was a fairly basic configuration but still relatively secure. I got there in the end but I have to say it is a bit of a painful process. Still – learning something always involves a little pain.
