I want to run the user profile service application on a SharePoint 2013 Farm. When I create the service, I cannot open it, there is an 'Unexpected error'. When I try to run the User Profile Synchronization service, it stuck on running. I have tried these:
- resetting IIS
- Stopping the service from Powershell and starting again
- changing the Farm account and also the SharePoint account
- adding the account to local users group
There is also one more error about the Forefront Identity Manager, which has been mentioned here: http://www.harbar.net/articles/sp2010ups.aspx as a test to check if the whole profile service is working or not, I receive an error : Your account is not a member of a required security group
My account should be part of which groups? Or there is another problem? It might be a service account issue, but I don't know exactly what is the problem. I have the following permissions for my account but the default managed account is something else:
SharePoint Server Search
User Profile Synchronization Service
Microsoft SharePoint Foundation Application Pool: SharePoint
User Profile app
Update: Found the problem.
I had to reenter the credentials in IIS pools for the related ones.
