We have a problem with UPA in cross farm scenario in SharePoint 2016 ( April 2018 CU).

  • We configure the UPA in Farm A (where everything is working as expected). MySites also in Farm A
  • Build a Trust between Farm A and Farm B

  • Consume the UPA & MMS from Farm A in Farm B

  • In Farm B, we enable to configure the Self-Service Site creation for any web application. When we click the self service site creation link in Ribbon we encountered following error

" Sorry, something went wrong UserProfileApplicationNotAvailableException_Logging :: UserProfileApplicationProxy.UserProfileApplication has null upa "

  • In ULS logs following entry

"Application error when access /_admin/ConfigSSC.aspx, Error=UserProfileApplicationNotAvailableException_Logging :: UserProfileApplicationProxy.UserProfileApplication has null upa

" I checked the permission of Farm account & App pool account of Farm B on UPA in farm A, trust is healthy as other functions & MMS is working as expected. I have attached the ULS logs with verbosex level.

I tried the same scenario in different set of farms but no luck.

What i am missing here? is this scenario supported?
