People Picker takes too long to resolve names



People Picker takes too long to resolve names 

 http://i.technet.microsoft.com/dynimg/IC468765.jpg

This is a most common issue that we see in People search that picker takes more time to resolve the names. Microsoft has provided a fix for this. There is not impact and no downtime.

Issue: People Picker takes too long to resolve names

Cause: The problem is that we will always go to Active Directory first by default to do the lookup via the Translate To ids  function.  This isn’t desirable in this specific case because it’s a SharePoint security group that’s being passed.  The second part of the problem is with the format of the name specified on the people picker field.  The fact that there is no \ in the name causes Active Directory to submit the lookup against every domain in the forest.  In a large Forest, this can become a taxing operation.  Finally, the lookup is resolved within SharePoint.

Solution: Please run the following to resolve the issue.

1.    [System.Reflection.Assembly]::LoadWithPartialName("Microsoft.SharePoint")
2.    $webapp=[Microsoft.SharePoint.Administration.SPWebApplication]::Lookup("WEB App URL")
3.    $webapp.PeoplePickerSettings.ActiveDirectoryRestrictIsolatedNameLevel=$true;
4.    $webapp.Update();

one of the site collection in my test lab was not displaying any of the images in the site which were contained in the document libraries. When I tried accessing the image directly got the error “File Not Found”. But when I check in the particular document library all the images are available.

Issue: Images not displaying in SharePoint sites

Cause: This could be of many reasons, In this article am providing the one which I know as per my experience.

1.   The name of IMAGES Folder in the path C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\14\TEMPLATE is different.
2.   images were not available in this cache folder

Solution: Follow the steps to resolve the issue.

1.   Ensure that the IMAGES Folder in the path C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\14\TEMPLATE is named as” IMAGES”

2.   clearing the Blob Cache
To do so go to Site Settings -> Site Collection Object Cache Settings
In Disk Based Cache Reset section enable Force this server to reset its disk based cache check box and click OK. Now the images will appear properly.
If you still seeing the same error, clear your browser cache, close all the browser windows and open the site again.
