After setting up User Profile Service Application and configuring the synchronisation connection to your active directory you receive the following error

When investigating further using the MIISClient.exe tool located in “C:Program FilesMicrosoft Office Servers14.0Synchronization ServiceUIShell” on the operations TAB you also see the following error under (DS_FULLIMPORT) 


Confirm that the service account used to run Forefront Identity Manager Synchronization Service (FIMSynchronizationService) has the AD Security right of “Replicating Directory Changes” at the domain level 

  1. Open the Active Directory Users and Computers snap-in
  2. On the View menu, click Advanced Features.
  3. Right-click the domain object, such as “”, and then click Properties.
  4. On the Security tab, if the desired user account is not listed, click Add; if the desired user account is listed, proceed to step 7.
  5. In the Select Users, Computers, or Groups dialog box, select the desired user account, and then click Add.
  6. Click OK to return to the Properties dialog box.
  7. Click the desired user account.
  8. Click to select the Replicating Directory Changes check box from the list.
  9. Click Apply, and then click OK.
  10. Close the snap-in.

 NOTE: Group “Domain Admins” already has the above right however if you are still seeing this issue add the service account explicitly to the AD Security
