User Profile Application Failing in SharePoint 2010 (14.0.4514.1004)

I keep getting the following error "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.". As sugested by Travis at http://blogs.pointbridge.com/Blogs/nielsen_travis/pages/default.aspx I tried commenting the two security nodes, removing its' allowInsecureTransport attributes, and setting then False. As Lionel wrote in his comment I tried also modifying "Central Administration / Application Management / Configure service application associations / Application Proxy Group" of my share point web application. My application pool for User Profile Service Application seems working and User Profile Service status is Started.One thing I remember about my issue, first I tried creating User Profile Service Application I got some error message and tried creating User Profile Service Application again. It gave me some other exception and than I navigated somehow to the "Manage service applications" page and there the desired User Profile Service Application was magically on the list with status Started. I thought - that's great! But when I clicked the User Profile Service Application link I got the nasty red error I mentioned at the beginning. Any ideas?Regards,Dawid Ireno

"Use Social Features" permission in "User Profile Service Application"



We wish to disable the "Tags and Notes" feature on our SharePoint 2010 site.  When I remove the "Use Social Features" permission from the "User Profile Service Application" this also removes the "My Site" link from the drop down at the top of the page.

Why on earth would this happen?  According to the TechNet page on social features (http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ee721063.aspx) the Use Social Features permission "Includes social tags, Note Board, and ratings."  Nothing in there indicates that it would remove the link to My Site.

My Site continues to work of course, it is just that the link is removed (which confuses users).

We want to disable Tags and Notes but leave the link to My Site.  Is there a way?

Cannot get user profile service application to work using the guide on harbar.net?



I'm hoping someone on here can help with this, as I've really been round the houses with this.

Anyway I've attempted to provision the UPS Service App probably 4 times now, each time learning more and more about the common problems.

The last time, I rolled my VM back to just after the installation of SharePoint 2010 binaries, and then ran the PCW and created the farm again from scratch.

I then followed this guide: http://www.harbar.net/articles/sp2010ups.aspx

Everything seemed to work perfectly well, after provisioning UPS I did a couple of iisresets as welll as execadmsvcjobs until I could see the timer job that provisions the FIM services.

These services came up and the following errors were reported in the event log:


The first one is lies, I did start the service and verified it was running, anyway for completeness:

"There are no instances of the User Profile Service started on any server in this farm. Ensure that at least one instance is started on an application server in the farm using the Services on Server page in Central Administration."

This one I have seen constantly on my Farm through various builds:

Creating User Profile Service application and proxy using PowerShell

Hi All,

Not sure if anybody have tried creating a new user profile service application and user profile service aplication proxy using PowerShell?

I am able to create the user profile service application using the following cmdlet:

-ApplicationPool "SharePoint Web Services Default"
-Name "Demo Profile User Service"
-MySiteHostLocation http://demo2010a:80/my
-ProfileDBName UserProfile_ProfileDB_Demo
-ProfileSyncDBName UserProfile_SyncDB_Demo
-SocialDBName UserProfile_SocialDB_SyncDB

I was also not able to supply the MySite Host Relative Path (-MySiteRelativePath) and MySites have not been set up for the user profile application. And again, get-help lists MySiteRelativePath as a valid parameter, but when executed, PowerShell throws that the parameter is invalid. 

I am unable to create  a new proxy for the above created user profile service application using the cmdlet:


The cmdlet keeps asking for parameter Uri which seems to be undocumented.

Would be glad if anyone can help out here.

Change Service Account for User Profile Service application



I change service account for user profile service application from spfarm to spservice . and then FIM Synchronization Service is stopped and i found this error in event viewer.

"The server encryption keys could not be accessed.

User Action

Verify that the service account has permissions to the following registry key:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Forefront Identity Manager\2010\Synchronization Service

If the problem persists, run setup and restore the encryption keys from backup."

But i tried to set the permission for spservice in registry. Still can't start the FIM Synchronization Service and also the log on as "Account" is changed to spservice .

When I change to spfarm for User Profile Service Application, it is working fine.

Please advise me that what do i need to configure for spservice ?



Central Administration, "User Profile Service Application" could not be provisioned


SP 2010 beta2 installed in Server Farm mode, using local account. OS = Windows 2008 R2, SQL Server 2008.

After SP Config Wizard is complete, the SP 2010 Central Administration is opened. I filled in the Service Account, clicked Next and a processing screen is spinning for abiut 3 minutes. After that IE8 displays an error message.

The service application proxy "User Profile Service Application" could not be provisioned because of the following error: The request channel timed out while waiting for a reply after 00:00:19.5439453. Increase the timeout value passed to the call to Request or increase the SendTimeout value on the Binding. The time allotted to this operation may have been a portion of a longer timeout.

Corelation Id: fe1bc44d-88ff-4297-85f8-4b5dcce248c1

Is it a critical error and can you please suggest where I can increase the timeout value?

Thanks very much in advance.

Forefront Identity Manager errors when starting the User Profile Synchronization Service Application

I have seen several people who are having trouble getting the User Profile Synchronization Service to start.  None of those threads have the set of errors that I am seeing.  I have all the prerequisites installed and I am using the farm administrator account which has admin rights both on the SP server and the SQL box.  This is a split back-to-back extranet topology and there is a one way trust between the extranet domain and the internal domain.  The administrator account is an internal domain account.  I receive the following two Forefront errors every five seconds in the event log after starting the User Profile Synchronization Service Application:

Error Handling: Throwing Custom Exception Types from a Managed COM+ Server Application


Exception handling semantics in .NET are based on type, so you can create custom exceptions that have their own properties and methods. In .NET, exceptions are first-class citizens, and since they're the built-in error handling mechanism, all .NET-compliant languages must support exceptions. In addition, COM+ services are available to .NET code as Enterprise Services, so you can leverage exceptions in your Enterprise Services design.In this article the author describes custom exceptions, throwing exceptions across COM interop boundaries, and working with Enterprise Services.

ASP.NET: Nine Options for Managing Persistent User State in Your ASP.NET Application


ASP.NET provides many different ways to persist data between user requests. You can use the Application object, cookies, hidden fields, the Session or Cache objects, and lots of other methods. Deciding when to use each of these can sometimes be difficult. This article will introduce the aforementioned techniques and present some guidelines on when to use them. Although many of these techniques existed in classic ASP, best practices for when to use them have changed with the introduction of the .NET Framework. To persist data in ASP.NET, you'll have to adjust what you learned previously about handling state in ASP.
