Okay, this might seem like kind of a corny post, but I have run in to a couple of people inquiring about how to enable MySites after they have disabled them by using my previous post.

Pretty much it is the reverse of the article, but for good measure I will just go through the steps here too.

  1. Go to the Shared Service Provider that is hosting the MySites
  2. Go to Personalization Services Permissions
  3. Add or Edit the user account you want to enable the MySites functionality for.
    1. If you want to give all authenticated users permissions then edit the NT Authority\Authenticated Users account
    2. If you previously deleted the Authenticated Users Account then you might have to add it back in if the first part of step 3a remains true.
  4. When you get to the permissions screen check these 2 permissions
    1. Create Personal Site
    2. Use Personal Features

Now please be aware that this shouldn't be taken lightly. You definitely need to be sure that you have planned for capacity.

Hope this helps.
