Comment 24 Kedar Bidarkar 2018-08-01 10:48:57 UTC
Followed the below steps to verify this bug:

Made use of Powershell commands to download and upload photo to user attribute "thumbnailPhoto".

On AD Server:

1) Downloaded photo:
$client = new-object System.Net.WebClient

2) Uploaded photo:
$photo = [byte[]](Get-Content C:\Users\Administrator\Pictures\thumbnailphoto.jpg -Encoding byte)
Set-ADUser foobar -Replace @{thumbnailPhoto=$photo}

On Satellite6 Server:

1) On Create LDAP Auth source page of "attribute mappings" Tab do:

Photo attribute: thumbnailPhoto

Verified with Sat6.3.3 snap2

Comment 25 Kedar Bidarkar 2018-08-01 10:50:51 UTC
The photo added to user "foobar" on AD Server appeared automatically in the top right corner of Administer > Users.
