Fixing people picker hosting scenarios in WSS

December 8, 2009

"This setting is to be primarily used by hosting companies wishing to 1) place all users from a given customer in a given AD container (organizational unit for example) 2) make a site collection or a web application available to that customer and 3) Restricting what users from that customer can see in the people picker to the users present in that container. 
The parameter passed in the distinguished name of the organizational unit (example: OU=contoso,ou=customers,dc=litware,dc=local). The parameter is used as the start location for a search (the “base path” in correct terms). if this setting is no set, the base path is always the root of a forest or domain. With the parameter set, it will start at the level of the container specified."
