I have created a User Profile Service Application in SharePoint 2010. But when I try to start the User profile synchronization service it sits in “Starting” status for sometime and finally status gets changed to “Stopped”.
- I am using Farm account to start User profile synchronization service.
- The farm account is member of local administrator group
- Service account used to run User profile synchronization service is also a member of local administrator group.
I have created a new/fresh SharePoint 2010 server and I am able to start the service. I have stopped the service for testing and then trying to start again and I am seeing the same issue in this new server as well now. If I stop the User Profile Synchronization service from Central Administration, are there any configurations I need to do before attempting to start the service again?
