Failure trying to synch web application Event ID 5555

Wednesday, April 19, 2017 - by Keith A. Smith

One of the errors I got after upgrading sharepoint that I couldn’t shake until recently.

Failure trying to synch web application , ContentDB Exception message was Microsoft.Office.Server.UserProfiles.UserProfileApplicationNotAvailableException: No User Profile Application available to service the request. Contact your farm administrator.
at Microsoft.Office.Server.Administration.UserProfileApplicationProxy.get_ApplicationProperties()
at Microsoft.Office.Server.Administration.UserProfileApplicationProxy.get_PerfmonInstanceHandle()
at Microsoft.Office.Server.UserProfiles.ContentDBSynchronizer..ctor(ELogType logType, SPContentDatabase cdb, SPJobState jobState)
at Microsoft.Office.Server.UserProfiles.WSSProfileSyncJob.Execute()

Run from the sharepoint bin directory in a cmd prompted

Stsadm -o sync -listolddatabases 2
Stsadm -o sync -deleteolddatabases 2

Finally, and I’m not sure if this is necessary, but I read that you should change timer job “Timer Service Recycle” (Central Administration –> Job Definitions) to run at 06:30 PM.  This last step can be done through Central Administration.  After doing this my errors went away.  I did however need to run a full user profile synchronization by going to Central Administration –> Manage Profile Service: SharedServicesSearch_UserProfile –> Start Profile Synchronization
