I had a situation with UPS service. I have a farm with 2 WFE and 2 AppServers. In the WFE there are two WebApplication.

From the AppServer of this farms the UPS is connected to the UPS of other Farm. From the WebApplication there are a proxy configured to consume this UPS Service. From one of this WebApplication I can see the attribute of Mobile Number from People Pick but from the other not. There is a Application Proxy Group for each WebApp in which the are consuming the same UPS Proxy connection.

I try many things like recreate the Application Proxy Group from powershell or even try the command -SyncFromAD from the cmdlet SET-SPUser.

Anyone had a suggestion of what is going on?

I have a doubt of with service application must be associated with the UPS Proxy, because the Proxy Group I only have the UPS Service.

Well. I just redeploy the WSP solution and did a IISReset, and the Mobile attribute that I wasn't able to see in the People Picker now is showed.
The problem that I couldn't found the root cause of this. :(
But now is working again.

Always do an IISReset! Especially when establishing new claim providers and using certificates.
