Configure User Profile Service Application in SharePoint 2016

This post will help you to configure the User Profile Service application

User Profile Service application require MMS application in running mode.please make sure you configure MMS before you start with User profile service.

Note : SharePoint 2016 has deprecated Forefront Identity Manager (FIM) which we used in SharePoint 2013.
Microsoft has replaced FIM with Microsoft Identity Manger (MIM). You have to install and configure MIM only if you required sync data 2 way from and to AD.

This UPA which we are creating will do only Active Directory Import.

So lets get started :)

1. Open Central Administration--> Application Management--> Manage Service Application
2. Click New and Select User Profile service Application.

3. Enter a name for your UPS application and select create new application pool give a name to it.Also give name to your database accordingly.Click Create


5. It will take few minutes to configure your User Profile Service application.








 6. Once it is done,Click OK .You can see it listed on Manage Service Application page.



 7. Before you create a connection in UPS application.Make sure the account which you are using should have Replicated Directory change and read/write permission on the domain.

8.Open the User profile Service application manage page.Click on Configure Synchronization connections.
9. Click on Create New Connection.

10. Give name to your connection, then enter your forest name,give the account details you are using for sync purpose and click on populate container.



11. Select the OU which you want to sync in SharePoint and click OK.

12. Connection created, Now go to home page on User Profile service. We can see we have zero profiles.

13. Click on Start profile Synchronization. Select the Full sync for the first time after that you have to do incremental sync and click OK.

 15 Wait for profile synchronization status to become IDLE and after you can see your profile got imported to SharePoint




 We are done with User Profile in SharePoint. As mentioned above if you want 2 way sync then MIM need to be install. We will cover installation and configuration of MIM in different blog.

Hope it helps. Happy SharePointing :)
