I am working on configuring the User profile sync service (As in the services on server page) but is "stuck on starting".
Anyway, this service uses the farm account (where I installed Sharepoint under). Do I give this account the replicate changes permissions? The ups service app has the domainnetbiosnamesenabled property set to true/1 (my fqdn and netbios name for the domain are not the same).
I have a default instance name of sql server (MSSQLSERVER), and my fqdn/netbios names are not the same (I ran the powershell script to enable netbiosnames).
Anyway, my question is:
This service runs under the farm account (The account I installed sharepoint under). Do I therefore need to give this account the replicate directory changes permissions?
