We are developing on single machine without AD role, because we thought that since we are going to use ADFS, we don't need it. Our project requires that we set up MySite for users. I'm struggling with this, since I can't get "User Profile Synchronization Service" to start. Now I think that it might be connected with fact, that I don't have an AD instance.
I used most of the tutorials and walkthroughs about setting MySite and profile synchronization, but neither was sufficient.
I also read probably most of the User Profile Synchronization Service "Starting" Issue, but that didn't work either. So I'd like to know if it is even possible to run MySite and profile synchronization on single machine. Because if it's not possible, I'll stop trying and wasting my time.
