Our site was hit by a major disaster whic reduced our 6 server sharepoint farm to 2 servers. I have recovered the entire environment with the exception of the User Profile Service.
Whenever I attempt to start the service it says it is starting for about 5 minutes then eventually goes back to Stopped. The sync service shows as not provisioned
I have attempted various fixes from around the web including: The Autofixer which finds no problems yet says it is unable to start it:
I have also deleted and recreated the provisioning service but this made no difference.
Could someone point me in the direction of a way to troubleshoot this?
Thanks to input from you guys I have actually manage to ge the error up:
UserProfileApplication.SynchronizeMIIS: Failed to configure MIIS post database, will attempt during next rerun. Exception: System.Configuration.ConfigurationErrorsException: ERR_CONFIG_DB at Microsoft.Office.Server.UserProfiles.Synchronization.ILMPostSetupConfiguration.ValidateConfigurationResult(UInt32 result) at Microsoft.Office.Server.UserProfiles.Synchronization.ILMPostSetupConfiguration.ConfigureMiisStage2() at Microsoft.Office.Server.Administration.UserProfileApplication.SetupSynchronizationService(ProfileSynchronizationServiceInstance profileSyncInstance).
Of the possible causes listed on this page https://blogs.msdn.microsoft.com/spses/2015/06/16/err_config_db-while-starting-the-upa-synchronization-service-in-sharepoint-20102013/
none seem to apply to my situation. Is there anything else I can try?
