SP2010: UPS not getting any profiles

  Date: Oct 13    Category: MOSS    Views: 1385

The AD account I'm using to run the service has Directory Replication
permissions and I even made it a farm admin. For some reason, though, the
synchronization will run for 5min or so and then complete -- no errors that
I can see -- with no profiles.

The log has a rather cryptic error ("UserProfile Synchronization:
Encountered unexpected step result: stopped-connectivity") but a quick
search finds articles that claim this is because the account in question
doesn't have the requisite privileges on the domain.

What does miisclient.exe show? Just run that executable on the machine that
hosts the sync service.

Looks like we had a couple of problems; the last was
apparently the Named SQL instance issue with FIM services.

Apparently there are about twenty different things that can go wrong with
the UPS. What's your farm topology?

Are your Forefront Identity Manager services (Windows Services) started? If
not, then check the Event Log. Make sure that your UPS service account has
Directory Replication permissions on the domain. Also, if you have
mixed-mode AD, make sure that the account in question is a member of
the "Pre-Windows
2000 Compatible Access" group.

Our last problem was that the FIM services were ignoring the fact that our
SQL cluster was running a named instance. The Event Log showed that FIM was
trying to hit the default instance, which of course did not have the profile
sync DB. If this is your problem, you'll need to create an alias on any
machines running the User Profile Service (install the SQL Server client
utilities first if you haven't). The article at
the process, though our SQL client tools were different since we're
on a later version; the settings are the same though.
