Tuning MOSS 2007 Peoplepicker if responstime is Unacceptable.

I used the following two stsadm commands to improve the performance of the MOSS 2007 peoplepicker:

  • Specify the domains to query:

    stsadm -o setsiteuseraccountdirectorypath -path “OU=DOMAIN,DC=internet,DC=ext,DC=com” -url http://mywebapplication/


  • To query only on the AD fields: userPrincipalName, sAMAccountName and displayname:

    stsadm.exe -o setproperty -pn peoplepicker-searchadcustomquery -pv (userPrincipalName={0})(sAMAccountName={0})(sn={0})(displayName={0}) -url http://mywebapplication/
