Mysite creation error

Sep 3, 2015 at 4:44 PM
  • I did configure sharepoint 2013 with ADFS 2.1
  • both RPs are set up for prtal and mysites, users auth ok on both
However, mysite creation fails with :

My Site creation failure for user 'i:05.t|ad federation|' for site url 'https://kering.mysites.sp2013.local/personal/sp_admin_clouddetest_fr'.
The exception was: . ---> Microsoft.SharePoint.SPException: User cannot be found.

In the logs, I am confounded, :

Creating site /personal/sp_admin_clouddetest_fr in content database KERING_Content_MySites [LDAPCP] Connect to AD this server is member of, with application pool credentials
[LDAPCP] Querying of LDAP servers finished in 1ms (current timeout is 10000ms)
[LDAPCP] This LDAP query did not return any result: "(| (&(objectclass=user)( )" 4
[LDAPCP] Validation with LDAP lookup created 0 permissions instead of 1 expected. Aborting operation

It looks like the timer job creating the mysite isn’t resolving the claim user with the custom IDP?

Thanks for any input!
