We are currently running SharePoint 2010 on Windows 2008 R2 servers. Our User Profile Service and User Profile Sync Service are currently running, and profile imports work fine when kicked off from Central Admin. However, the profile sync timer job always
fails with the following Application Event error:
Event 6398, SharePoint Foundation
The Execute method of job definition Microsoft.Office.Server.UserProfiles.UserProfileImportJob (ID 340e8ca2-6f3b-4bd8-80f2-0fe011709805) threw an exception. More information is included below.
Looking at the ManageUserProfileServiceApplication.aspx log, indeed the only imports visible are ones which have been kicked off manually in Central Admin. The failed scheduled imports are not even recorded to this log.
The ULS entry associated with this error is as follows:
08/31/2010 17:11:17.32 OWSTIMER.EXE (0x0CD0) 0x0C04 SharePoint Foundation
Timer 6398 Critical The Execute method of job definition Microsoft.Office.Server.UserProfiles.UserProfileImportJob
