I have some users that would like to delete from UPS in central admin. I have farm admin access and also added the accts to Admin - user profile service but when i try to delete i get access denied. Does anyone have an idea what I'm doing wrong?

Thanks in Advance

    Goto CA -> Service Application -> select UPS application (but don't click the link) -> Permission (at top ribbon). See whether you have permission? – Mark L Feb 4 '15 at 1:07

  • Thanks Mark. I did that but still getting access denied – naijacoder Feb 4 '15 at 23:15
  • Also check this: Goto CA -> Service Application -> select UPS application (but don't click the link) -> Administrators. See whether your farm admin have full control. – Mark L Feb 5 '15 at 1:07

Using Powershell:

$spSite=Get-SPSite "http://servername"
$ctx=[Microsoft.SharePoint.SPServiceContext]::GetContext($spSite)
$userName = "spUserToDelete";
$userProfileMgr = [Microsoft.Office.Server.UserProfiles.UserProfileManager, Microsoft.Office.Server.UserProfiles, Version=14.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=71e9bce111e9429c]
$upm=New-Object $userProfileMgr($ctx)
$upm.RemoveUserProfile($userName)
