  • Hi Rakib,

    Is your SharePoint Farm account part of the Local Administrator's group on the server where you are provisioning the UPS? See the following threads for detailed steps. 

    Hope this helps!

  • Don`t forget to restart Sharepoint machine, where you setup UPS.

  • Hi

    I had this problem 2 days ago.

    1)there are two services on your sharepoint services server that are related to user profile service.please be sure that these two services which names start with forefront(I forget exact name) is start or not?

    2)if you have problem with starting them.run this service with a farm account.(properties forefront....... service log on tab)
