I've just installed MOSS2007 onto a new development server. I've created an SSP and done a successfull crawl of our domain. I've created a web application and a blank site collection and am trying to add a user into the site owners. In the add users box I type his full login name, including domain prefix and click the little check names button but it doesn't find him. Nor will it find him if I browse and search. I tried my own domain login and it couldn't find that either (currently logged on as local administrator). I added all authenticated users to the site visitors, logged off the site and logged on with my domain login, which worked. I switch back to administrator on the site and try to add my domain user to the site, which now works, but only me.
- Why doesn't SharePoint lookup the user from the SSP where it has been imported too.
- Why does it only start to find a particular user once they've logged on, but not before.
