Making the Sharepoint people picker see domain users

For some reason the sharepoint people picker in Sharepoint Services 3.0 was not seeing domain users. This could be due to this sharepoint install not being installed by a user with access to the domain (i.e. a local user). To fix this use the “stsadm.exe” command:

stsadm -o setproperty -url http://<webapplicationurl> -pn “peoplepicker-searchadforests” -pv “domain:<fulldomainurl>,<username>,<password>”

where the username and password are for someone with access to the domain.
