Ran an upgrade of SP2007 to SP2010. All runs through well but then the error log reports:

[OWSTIMER] [SPUpgradeSession] [ERROR] [4/26/2010 8:16:52 AM]: Upgrade [SharedResourceProvider12 Name=SharedServices1] failed.
[OWSTIMER] [SPUpgradeSession] [ERROR] [4/26/2010 8:16:52 AM]: Inner Exception: There are no online service instances for this application.
[OWSTIMER] [SPUpgradeSession] [ERROR] [4/26/2010 8:16:52 AM]:    at Microsoft.Office.Server.UserProfiles.ProfilePropertyServiceClient.ExecuteOnChannel(String operationName, CodeBlock codeBlock) 

Can't get into central admin or browse the sites. The timer job can't seem to complete because of the above.

Has anyone else seen similar?

Not sure if it is related, but remember that after doing an in-place upgrade you must manually configure your timer jobs.

Shameless plug for my whitepaper on upgrade
