After updating Infopath Browser Enabled Form Template, new field became read-only on old/existing forms

Problem: After updating Infopath Browser Enabled Form, the newly added field became read-only on old forms. If you open the existing forms in notepad, you will not see your new field in the xml.

Soln: This happens when you choose 'Do nothing' on version upgrade. To make the fields selectable/editable, republish the form with the following options. Go to Tools -> Form Options -> Versioning -> On version upgrade, choose "Automatically upgrade existing forms". Once the new version is uploaded in Central Admin, go back to your old forms, you should see your new fields as editable.

Moss - importing profiles from Active Directory

While trying to configure import user profiles from AD, encountered the following warning message:

'This directory service setting has not been validated because the current user is not authenticated to the directory. It may be a valid setting. Do you want to save this directory service connection setting?'

This could happen when in configurating the Import Connection, 'Use Default Account' is selected. This default account refers to the application pool account. If this is a local account user profiles cannot be imported. In the Authentication Information section in the bottom of the Edit Connection page, click 'Specify Account' and specify a domain account. Go back to the 'User Profiles and Properties' page and 'Start full import'.
