Diagnosing Common Issues
• FIM
• 99% of the time, permissions are the issue
– Farm Account must be local admin during the
sync
– Farm Account must have “Allow Log on Locally”
– Sync Account needs “Replicating Directory
Changes” permission in AD
• IISRESET, Logon / Logoff, and Restart
SharePoint Timer Service before starting the
UPSA
• IISRESET after starting the UPSA
Sync Issues – Domain Permissions

Tips
• Add a link to the User Profile Service and
Search Service on the resources list on the
homepage and on possibly the Top Link
bar
• Install SP1 and the August 2011 CU at
least
– April CU refresh offers even better UPS
goodies
Gotchas
• Oct 2011 CU breaks profile photos.
• Sync Database size
– Fixed in April CU (be careful of the version of April CU
since it was rescinded by Microsoft – new v .5006)
– Also can be handled by deleting the Sync DB and
reprovisioning UPA.
• Remember the Sync DB is only a staging environment
• Keep the social and profile DBs!
• Politics
– Who owns the identities, does the data come from
multiple teams, how will the connections work, if you
do write-back, who becomes the authoritative source?
