I've not long started a new job. I have inherited a SP2016 Farm, which I have to manage and develop as part of my role.
I have limited Central Admin access from a previous role with SP2013.
The current farm set up has: 1 DB Server, 1 WFE(/app) server - and a mail server (not currently configured).
The connection from AD to SP does not appear to have been set up correctly - I'm trying run the sync job to AD - when I click run, it rapidly returns to the previous page, so doesn't look at though it's doing anything.
The Sync Connection that is there does point to our AD - with type of Active Directory Import. I have access to the admin user name and password. And the correct containers appear. No additional profiles are ever added.
Do I need to add a separate Domain Controller to have a "full" connection from SharePoint to the AD ?
Or Do I need to tweak something in the sync connection?
None of the current servers have AD FS added as a server role.
Any help would be much appreciated. If you got this far, thanks for taking the time to read.
EDIT: Now I have my User Profiles visible. With regards to authentication - we want to be using Single Sign On, does that now mean I need to include the AD FS role on server?
Can that role be added to the WFE, or does it need to be on its on DC server?
