People picker doesn't give results from AD
I have a WSS installed. I ran the stsadm (stsadm -o setproperty –url –pn peoplepicker-onlysearchwithinsitecollection –pv yes )to search only in site collection. Now it returns user from only site collection. Now I want to disable and return search from AD. How can i do that.

Could you please tell me what is exactly people picker. I mean people picker is the check name button or the Browse button.

When I add domain\username and then click on chek name it finds the user, but when I give the username in browse pop window and search it doesn't find anything.

Please help.

First ran the below command and if it give results then you need verify if it is proper domain.
STSADM.EXE -o getsiteuseraccountdirectorypath -url "https://yoursitecollectionURL"

Next you can ran ( if your domain is

STSADM.EXE -o setsiteuseraccountdirectorypath -url "https://yoursitecollectionURL" -path "DC=XYZ,DC=COMPANY,DC=COM"

Once you ran this, the people picker should search from the domain.
