I had a requirement to setup new SharePoint 2010 environment. After everything, created user profile service application to get users synced. Got “MOSS MA not found” error on adding a synchronization connection while configuring user profile service application.
Go to Services Console (Start >> Administrator Tools >> Services) and then start these services.
- Forefront Identity Manager Synchronization Service
- Forefront Identity Manager Service Synchronization Service
Restarting “User profile synchronization service” from SharePoint Central Administration, Services on Server page fixed the problem in another case.
Other things to look at:
- Firewall – FIM service should be accessible via port 5725 on local machine.
- Remove and Re-Add Farm Admin to ‘Administrators’ section with Full Control in User profile Service application
- Server Reboot!
