I got a strange problem with Sharepoint 2010 User Profile Synchronization Service (UPS).
I have User Profile Service Application(UPA) and User Profile Service is started. Two FIM Service is stopped (cause UPS not started?). When I tried to start UPS, it stuck in starting.
So, I stop UPS with PowerShell, then deleted old UPA and created a new one. I click UPA link, then got "An unexpected error has occurred". ULS Log shows:
- UserProfileApplication.DumpSynchronizationStatusToFile: Unexpected exception: System.NullReferenceException: Object reference not set to an instance of an object.
- UserProfileServiceUserStatisticsWebPart:LoadControl failed, Exception: Microsoft.Office.Server.UserProfiles.UserProfileApplicationNotAvailableException: This User Profile Application's connection is currently not available. The Application Pool or User Profile Service may not have been started. Please contact your administrator.
Is it necessary that UPS & FIM Service started for managing UPA ? Or just User Profile started then we can see UPA page ?
If I want to start UPS, should I start two FIM service by manually operated ?
