This is for a new SP 2010 install. I have a server running SP 2010. In IIS I have created an empty web site, "share.example.com". In SP Central Admin, I have created a web application bound to the IIS site, and that's working fine. In Central Admin > App Mgmt > Service Apps (shorthand there), I delete the default "User Profile Service" and create a new instance, bound to my web application, and using typical default values, as works in other cases.
My user profile servce gets created, but when I click "Manage" in the ribbon, I get the SP 2010 error screen.
"Error An unexpected error has occurred. Troubleshoot issues with Microsoft SharePoint Foundation. Correlation ID: 7be01822-5ad0-465a-9df2-45fc6a1cb86d Date and Time: 12/5/2011 8:15:57 AM " (the Coorelation ID changes each time).
I have deleted-and-redone that service many times, also changing the name of the re-created service too. No luck. Messed with changing default values, etc. No love. Nothing.
Using ULS Viewer, nothing obvious crosses my path, and I'm not getting much luck with it. Google and Bing have not been my friends on this, although some other posts over on msdn make me suspect it's possibly the web site name != netbios name, but I haven't looked into it yet.
Any suggestions on solving this puzzle?
