People Picker doesn't show single imported users

I had a strage issue last day. The people picker did not show single users from an imported AD group. I looked at the user profile store and could find the user. I started a full profile import and could find the user in the user profile database again. (I thought perhaps the account was deleted in the AD)

But when I search for the user in the people picker the user could not be find. Other users from the same AD group could be found with no problem.

After all the reason was that the account was not active. The people picker only searches for active user accounts.

You can check if an account is active or not with the following dos command:
net user *username* /domain | find "active"

(Replace *username* with the loginname of the user)
