SharePoint 2016 User SYNC Service Missing

Thomas Grassi
Thomas Grassi used Ask the Experts™
on
SharePoint 2016 2 Node Farm Cluster
Windows 2019 Data Center.

After going to Central Administration Application Management Web Applications Manage Web Applications I created a New Web Application
That was successful

Then to Site Collections and created a new Site Collection   that also was successful

Next step is to make sure my Services are started

Service Applications Manage Service applications

My new
User Profile Service Application shows an is started.

But I do not see User Profile SYNC service listed.

So I ran this command  install-spservice

When I go to Services on Server I do not see the SYNC service or my User Profile Service.

Any ideas?

Thanks for the information, I understand it somewhat better now.

Here is some good information (sorry if it duplicates what you may have already)

Information about the User Profile Service

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sharepoint/install/create-a-user-profile-service-application

Keep in mind, SharePoint 2016 does not have a sync service as previous versions did. It is possible to do a direct import of AD properties in to the User Profile Service. (It is a way one street with this process.) Here is some good information about this:

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sharepoint/administration/configure-profile-synchronization-by-using-sharepoint-active-directory-import

If you want or need to do a two way sync, here is that information:

https://social.technet.microsoft.com/wiki/contents/articles/33745.sharepoint-2016-user-profile-service-step-by-step-configuration-of-mim-2016.aspx


Hope that helps...
