SharePoint 2013 - Migrate/Replicate User Profile Service Application Configuration between Farms using PowerShell - Part 3

 

Following my previous posts on this subject, I thought I should add the following ‘Part 3' as a brief wrap up.

Assuming you (now) have a working User Profile Service Application on the existing farm and on the alternative/target farm, with matching "AD Sync Connections" and "User Profile Properties", there are a few other steps that you may need to take into consideration.

 

1. Permissions

Waldek Mastykarz has some great posts on this subject:
Granting permissions to the User Profile Service Application using PowerShell
Granting the "Retrieve People Data for Search Crawlers" administration permission on the User Profile Service Application using PowerShell

 

2. Connection Filters

There are a variety of links available on this subject

However, none appear to provide any details on if/how they can be created via PowerShell, so as of this time of writing any 'Connection Filter Creation' steps will have to remain a manual UI task.

 

3. Re-Order User Profile Properties

Again, there a variety of good posts on this subject:
Change order of user profile properties in SharePoint 2013 with Powershell
SharePoint 2013: Another way to change order of user profile properties via powershell

 

 

Once these have been completed (and assuming the previous PowerShell Steps 1 and 2 were successful), you should now have a working duplicate of the User Profile Service Application on the alternative/target farm.


Happy Coding…
