I am using sharepoint 2010 standard on Server2008 R2. I have configured and started User Profile Synchronization Service by following http://www.harbar.net/articles/sp2010ups.aspx article. My both services (User Profile Service & User Profile Synchronization Service) are running fine. I have also created a new connection to AD and selected an OU for the profile import. However, when I click "Start Profile Synchronization", the sync does not start and the status remains idle

I have given "Replicating Directory Changes" & "Pre-Windows2000 compatible access" (as the DC is Win2003) permission to the profile importing account. It is also the member of "local admin group" of the server running "User Profile Synchronization". The farm account has "logon locally" permission and is a member of "local admin group".

The critical error that I get as soon as I start the User Profile Sync is

6398 Sharepoint Foundation The Execute method of job definition Microsoft.Office.Server.UserProfiles.UserProfileImportJob (ID bbe3ae37-7796-4c3e-a1b4-aeac5448d5fa) threw an exception. More information is included below.

What could be stopping the service to sync for user profiles?

As I understand, this error from windows events. What about uls logs? –  IAfanasov Apr 27 '12 at 4:02

I'd check out the Forefront Identity service and see what its up to,: C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office Servers\14.0\Synchronization Service\Bin\miisclient.exe.

Sounds similar to a problem I had:

On the SharePoint server goto :

Computer Configuration \ Windows Settings \ Security Settings \ Local Policies \ Security Options. Then select "network security: LDAP client signing requirements", change to "None".

Reboot the box

It's likely some Group Policy. Even though you change the settings on the box, GPO is resetting the the box. The other possibility is that you accidently have 2 instances in the farm. –  Matthew McDermott Apr 29 '12 at 11:59
