All suggestions and answers are really appreciated.

I have Sharepoint installed on a Test computer and I did something very stupid. I deleted a service account domain\spupsync ( was using it for user profile Sync service ) from AD before deleting it from Managed Accounts in Sharepoint. Now I am unable to remove this account from Managed Accounts I get the following error

" Error The account domain\SPupsync is still being used by these components: User Profile Synchronization Service. Troubleshoot issues with Microsoft SharePoint Foundation. Correlation ID: 1a2bc365-70a8-4edd-9644-e5f468a93bef "

and it made things worse I am unable to access the Configure Service accounts page , I get this error

" Error Some or all identity references could not be translated. Troubleshoot issues with Microsoft SharePoint Foundation. Correlation ID: 5a818ddd-a8a3-46a5-9a6c-d5f09b30f9b7 "

I have tried removing the account from PS using the remove-spmanagedaccount , no luck Remove-SPManagedAccount : The account domain\SPupsync is still being used by these components:

User Profile Synchronization Service.

Can you try following steps:

  1. Create a new service account.
  2. Set the user profile service to use this newly created service account.
  3. Then try to delete the original account.
  • Sorry for the very late reply Nadeem, I created a new service account and set it for user profile service but it didnt help , I still get the same errors. Also I used remove-spserviceapplicationpool and removed the User profile app Pool as well but no luck... – Snowflakes Jan 28 '13 at 17:42

    I tried creating the same account (domain\spupsync) in AD and that account now shows up in managed accounts but I am still unable to delete it. I found this link it may be usefull if someone else has the same problem bluedoglimited.com/SharePointThoughts/Lists/Posts/… – Snowflakes Jan 28 '13 at 18:07
  • try assigned new service account via powershell and force option (if exist) – Monica Jagani Apr 27 '16 at 5:39

Because it is a test environment. If you don't need the content in the user profiles & config data try deleting the entire UPS and see if you can delete the managed account.

Alternatively if you do need the profile data:
