People Picker Port/Protocol Requirements
While working on a deployment this week, the OOB People Picker caught my attention and I realized there was not a great deal of documentation available on its requirements and troubleshooting. Driving this thinking was the nature of the deployment on which it was to be configured - a cross forest, secured deployment with Web front-end servers in a firewalled perimeter network. Purpose The People Picker enables an end-user to specify a name or partial name when provisioning a user on a site collection and have the input resolved and validated against a directory source.
