User info sync problem in MOSS 2007
If synchronization of User info (profiles) between the SSP and the content databases failing to sync properly, than there are some old database GUIDs around in your SharePoint farm.
How it get’s broken, how we fix it?
Move or detached content database improperly.
The ID for the content database is stored in the Config database. By not moving the content database properly we don’t prepare the SSP for a new GUID, and the Timer Jobs will continue to try to sync with the old GUID not allowing us to sync with the new one.
How to fix this problem?
a. Run the command “stsadm -o sync -listolddatabases 1″ You should then get a list of database GUID.
b. Run the command “stsadm -o sync -deleteolddatabases 1″ This will remove the record from the SSP database but will not touch the actual Content Database.
c. Then wait for the next sync and you should see tags getting updated.
