Unable to stop running User Profile Synchronization service

Hi people,

I would greatly appreciate any advice on how to stop a running User Profile Synchronization service.  

What happened was I successfully installed a MS SharePoint 2010 Enterprise edition with Farm settings. Then I proceed to try and do User Profile Synchronization. I made a mistake by starting a Start Profile Synchronization without creating a Synchronization Connection.  So I will get the following message if I try to create a connection:

Cannot navigate to the requested page while User Profile Synchronization is running. Please wait for the current Synchronization run to finish.

I tried stopping the Synchronization service using SharePoint Management Shell, stop-spserviceinstance but still see the error message if try to create a connection.

I have also tried restarting the machine but it didn't work either.
I have also tried iisreset, but that didn't work either.
I have also tried restarting all SharePoint related services but it didn't work either.

So the SharePoint experts out there, any advice or suggestions?

Thanks in advance.

Aaron

Hi there,

Please run following commands to stop the service

get-spserviceinstance >c:\listnew.txt

After the above command you will get list of running service
find out the service ID for user profile syncronization service and then below command

stop-spserviceinstance <ServiceID>

the service should be stopped

I have already mentioned that I tried using SharePoint Management Shell to stop the service but I am still getting the error message when I try to create a Synchronization Connection.

there is a user profile syncroniation job running under "moniter" option in central admin. Delete all the jobs related to user profile syncronization.
