Hello experts. I have a test Sharepoint 2013 VM on my laptop and I get an error when trying to add Active Directory.

I went to Central Admin > Service Applications >  Manage Service Applications > User Profile Service Application > Synchronization > Configure Synchronization Settings > <radio button select > Use SharePoint Active Directory Import > OK

I get:

Sorry, something went wrong

An unexpected error has occurred.

My VM is not in the domain - must it be in that domain to see Active Directory?
I don't have the permissions to do so otherwise I would have alrerady.


Thanks in advance.

Your server must be a member server of the domain, to take part in Active Directory.

No more points here of course, but fyi - UPS will replicate or sync with other AD domains that the SharePoint server is not a member of. You can establish sync connections to other AD's via Central Admin --> UPS Settings etc...
