Sometimes we want SharePoint to import only the user profiles of those user that belong to one specific Active Directory group. In this case we have to modify the import connection query expression in Shared Services Provider.
In this case we want all the users of the group Employees (in Groups OU) of the contoso.com domain to be imported:

Today I was setting up a fresh virtual machine with MOSS 2007 and I met the dreaded “An unknown error has ocurred” message after the SharePoint Configuration Wizard finished.
I traced it in the Event Viewer and it was a repetitive error such as this one:
The application-specific permission settings do not grant Local Activation permission for the COM Server application with CLSID
to the user NT AUTHORITYNETWORK SERVICE SID (S-1-5-20). This security permission can be modified using the Component Services administrative tool.
I looked up in the Registry and found out that the CLSID in the message identified one “IIS WAMREG admin service”. Then, I opened the Component Services, DCOM Config and under the properties of WAMREG service component I allowed NETWORK SERVICE account local launch and local activation permissions (on the Security tab).
The MOSS 2007 fresh welcome was just one IISRESET away!
