You review the permissions for the domain you are syncing user profiles from, and the user profile service has replicate directory changes defined.

1. Open ADUC (Active Directory Users and Computers)
2. Right Click the Domain DOMAIN.LOCAL, choose Delegate Control… click Next
4. Select Create a Custom Task to Delegate, click Next
5. Select ‘This folder, existing objects in this folder….’ Click Next
6. Select the ‘Replicate Directory Changes’ permission and click Next
7. Click Finish

Further Information

To view the error in more depth open MIISClient.exe on the server running the User Profile Sync. The application normally exists in the following path:

C:Program FilesMicrosoft Office Servers14.0Synchronization ServiceUIShellmiisclient.exe
Select the Operations Tab
Find the profile name DS_FULLIMPORT
If you look at the Status you will normal see the status of ‘stopped-connectivity, Double click this operation to view the Connection Log.
In the connection Log review the error.

In this example the error is Replication access was denied with Error Code 8453

The important column to note here is the Server and more specifically the domain.
In this example the Domain is different to the Domain you are syncing user profiles from; this is because the Domain you are queuing for User Profiles is a child domain which is part of a larger forest FOREST.LOCAL.

You will need to add Replicate Directory Changes to DOMAINUSERPOFILE for the FOREST.LOCAL Configuration Container in order to import profiles. Please run though the following
1. Open ADSIEdit
2. Expand Configuration for abf.local
3. Right-Click CN=Configuration,DC=FOREST,DC=LOCAL
4. Select Permissions Tab, Click Advanced
6. Select the ‘Replicate Directory Changes’ permission
7. Click OK
