The Check Names button does not work as expected after you set a Peoplepicker-searchadcustomfilter LDAP filter in a Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 site

SYMPTOMS

Consider the following scenario:

  • You set a Peoplepicker-searchadcustomfilter LDAP filter in a Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 site. For example, you set the following LDAP filter.

    stsadm -o setproperty -pn Peoplepicker-searchadcustomfilter -pv (!(samaccountname=<Myalias>)) -url http://<servername>

  • You restart Internet Information Services (IIS).
  • You try to add a user. To do this, you type <Myalias>, and then you click the Check Names button.

In this scenario, <Myalias> is resolved despite the filter. The expected result is that the Check Names button honors the LDAP filter. However, the LDAP filter is not honored when you click the Check Names button.
