User Profile Service Application - Clicking Manage throws exception.

We are currently in the progress of migrating our SharePoint 2016 on-premise site to 365 and everything has been working fine, nothing has been touch by any administrators. However, out of the blue yesterday morning at 6:10am the User Profile Server started erroring.

A summary of the errors it is throwing are:

The Execute method of job definition Microsoft.Office.Server.UserProfiles.LMTRepopulationJob (ID 9fd04747-aa54-4616-9946-bd6f352a8095) threw an exception. More information is included below.

Central Admin and system pages on sites are still loading and some non-custom forms are still working but most pages are displaying the error:

Sorry, something went wrong
An unexpected error has occurred.

Also, when go onto the User Profile Service Application and click Manage a Correlation ID error is given.

I have been trying to make some lighter changes to the site as I am reluctant to follow many posts on the web to resolve the issue as they mention previous upgrades or work that has been going on within the system before these problems occurred, but we have touched anything for a while.

In the logs, the correlation id seems to point towards the same issues such as:

  • Exception thrown while adding control 'ASP.SocialDataUserControl': System.NullReferenceException: Object reference not set to an instance of an object.
  • Exception thrown while adding control 'Microsoft.SharePoint.Portal.WebControls.SocialNotificationControl'
  • ProfilePropertyCache could not be refreshed for UPA Proxy

For the trust issues we have disconnected both APP and WFE server from the domain and readded but this did not change anything.

    Hello @Ian Marsden ,

    Welcome to Q&A Forum!

    Please following steps:

    1.You are using the Farm Account

    2.The Farm account is added to local administrator group during starting UPS service.

    3.Make sure your user is the part of local system administrator group

    4.Go to Central Administration >> Application Management >> Manage services on server >> Check if there is Distributed Cache Service, if so, stop it.

    5.Try to increase the timeout for the LMTCache and DistributedActivityFeedCache using PowerShell command below:

    $lmtcache = Get-SPDistributedCacheClientSetting -containertype DistributedActivityFeedLMTCache  
    Set-SPDistributedCacheClientSetting -ContainerType DistributedActivityFeedLMTCache $lmtcache   
    $feedcache = get-SPDistributedCacheClientSetting -containertype DistributedActivityFeedCache  
    Set-SPDistributedCacheClientSetting -ContainerType DistributedActivityFeedCache $feedcache  

    6.Then use the following command to populate the cache quickly:

    Update-SPRepopulateMicroblogLMTCache -ProfileServiceApplicationProxy <SPServiceApplicationProxyPipeBind> [-AssignmentCollection <SPAssignmentCollection>]   
    Update-SPRepopulateMicroblogFeedCache -[AccountName <AccountName>] -ProfileServiceApplicationProxy <SPServiceApplicationProxyPipeBind> [-AssignmentCollection <SPAssignmentCollection>] [-SiteSubscription <SPSiteSubscriptionPipeBind>]-[SiteUrl <SiteURL>]

    This didnt work so I took some other advice from the Reference link you posted which suggested to delete recreate the User Profile Application, as I see that recreating the User Profile Application Proxy has resolved some issues.

    This worked and its now all good. Thanks for your assistance.
