Yesterday the SharePoint 2013 SDK (Preview) was released and that made me thinking: What are my wishes for SharePoint 2013 FAST for SharePoint as Service Application That’s my top wish. Easier provisioning of FAST and easier (cheaper :)) licensing, e.g. coupled with ECALs, would help FS4SP to cover more ground. The same applies to Reporting Services with SQL 2012 (Denali) so I think my wish could come true.

I installed a new SharePoint demo and developing environment on my notebook and started with the slip-streamed installation of SharePoint with SP1 included. After configuring everything I tried to upload some Pictures to the UserProfiles I created in my Active Directory (synchronization did work!!!) but I got faced with this nice error: Method not found: ‘System.String Microsoft.Office.Server.UserProfiles.UserProfileGlobal.GetImportPhotoFolderName(System.Globalization.CultureInfo)’. I really love the User Profile Service I did some research and found out that the SharePoint 2010 Cumulative Update December 2012 should fix some problems of the User Profile Service (still wondering why this could pass the quality control…).
