I am having a problems with UPS I've configured it correctly on production and UAT, everything works perfectly! The problems starts when I am trying to configure UPS for both my TESING and DEV machines because,(maybe that is the reason I am not sure) for DEV and TESTING I am using one account from installing to configuring all service applications. I keep getting the same error that UPS failed to start. does it matter if I am using the same account for everything? Both DEV and Testing are multi-server farms.

Thanks in Advance!

  • is it sync service failed to start or sync with AD failed? – Waqas Sarwar MVP Nov 16 '16 at 14:32
  • it's the Sync before I can even add a connection it's telling me to wait for the sync to finish – Ed Charles Diesel Nov 16 '16 at 14:34
  • could you please check what error you getting in the Event Logs? also is your account is in local admin on the server where you are starting the sync service? – Waqas Sarwar MVP Nov 16 '16 at 14:35
  • Yes it is and it it keeps being on starting all the time – Ed Charles Diesel Nov 16 '16 at 15:08
  • check the Event log and SharePoint uls logs for more clue – Waqas Sarwar MVP Nov 16 '16 at 15:10
