User Profile Service

  • User Profile Service Sync Service will not start if the databases are on named SQL Server instance.
  • User Profile Service will not work on SharePoint stand alone installation.
  • To make Target Audience feature work, you need to import Groups also as part of the Profile Sync connection
  • It is suggested to run the ‘User Profile Service’ & ‘User Profile Sync Service’ on the same server.



$searchapp = Get-SPEnterpriseSearchServiceApplication


Otherwise search will not return results for trusted domain users.

  • Make sure the web application has root site collection otherwise you may have crawling related problems.
  • As part of general maintenace, it is good idea to clear the ‘BLOB Cache’ on WFE servers. In occasional cases it may cause troubles by showing wrong content.
