How To Fix the User Profile Service Not Starting   Leave a comment

There could be many reasons for the Forefront Identity Service from not starting.  Spencer Harbor provides a pretty comprehensive article on this subject.  However, none of them worked for me.  I had the UPS Service configured correctly.  As it turned out in my case it seemed to only happen when I rebooted the server.  The resolve for me was the “Profile.ps1” file I created to incorporate the SharePoint PowerShell Snap-In.  Renaming this file or removing it solved my issue.

You can locate the Profile.ps1 file (if it exists) at: C:\Windows\system32\Windows PowerShell\1.0
