The selection of directory service properties is disabled because the portal is in an untrusted domain

In User Profile, I was unable to modify any user property mapping due to missing Data Source field dropdown. There was no question of untrusted domain as I am using only one active directory and SharePoint was able to import from that. I finally managed to fix these by following these steps:

  • Goto to Profile and Import Settings
  • Click View Import Connections
  • Click on Existing Import Connection and select edit
  • In Authentication Information section, make sure the account is SharePoint Admin Domain account and not the default account
  • Click Ok and you should now able to see mapping data source drop down
