Event 6398 - The Execute method of job definition Microsoft.Office.Server.UserProfiles.UserProfileImportJob

Like many of you know, SharePoint 2013 and 2016 comes up with some recurring issues from time to time - one of these is Event ID 6398:

"The Execute method of job definition Microsoft.Office.Server.UserProfiles.UserProfileImportJob..."

Seen in the event log, it looks like this:

I myself forget about this occasionally (thus why I am posting here!).

Fortunately, this is not a big deal - this just means that the Forefront Identity Manager Service is not running. From Administrative Tools, open the Services (or use Start > Run and enter services.msc). Look for the two Forefront services - you will see the Manager service is stopped:

Right click on the service and select Start - problem solved!


Started getting various errors in a User Profile Service:

Detection of product '{90150000-104C-0000-1000-0000000FF1CE}', feature 'PeopleILM', component '{1C12B6E6-898C-4D58-9774-AAAFBDFE273C}' failed

Fix is easy - just add the NETWORK SERVICE account to the WSS_WPG Group: Technet Fix
