I am getting error "Request time out" error while creating user profile service. SP Farm have 8 servers total.

  • 2 Application
  • 2 WFE (in DMZ)
  • 2 Distributed Cache
  • 2 Search

There is no helpful details in ULS as well.

Need Help.

A few things to check:

  1. Make sure the WFE servers do not have any trouble communicating with other servers and services.

  2. Make sure you have login as the farm administrator account, and that it is in the local administrators group.

  3. Disable any Anti-Vrius on the servers as well as firewall. Disable loopback check if necessary.

  4. Run psconfig -cmd upgrade -inplace b2b force on all servers and make sure all servers are in no action required status.

  5. Try creating user profile service application using PowerShell.
