SharePoint 2010 user profile synchronization on a ‘Standalone’ environment


http://support.microsoft.com/kb/983061/

Consider the following scenario:

  • You run Microsoft SharePoint Server 2010 in a single-server environment. (This is known as a stand-alone installation.)
  • You try to start the User Profile Synchronization service.
  • You provide a password for the NT Authority\Network Service account.

In this scenario, the User Profile Synchronization service does not start.
