A tip about configuring Service Applications

If you create a new User Profile Service instance (Application Management / Service Applications / Manage service applications), but forgot to start the User Profile Service (System Settings / Servers / Manage services on server) before creating the service instance you may receive the following warning message when you try to configure the newly created instance:

This User Profile Application’s connection is currently not available. The Application Pool or User Profile Service may not have been started. Please contact your administrator.

This message is similar to one you receive when creating a Managed Metadata Service instance but forgot to start the Managed Metadata Web Service:

The Managed Metadata Service or Connection is currently not available. The Application Pool or Managed Metadata Web Service may not have been started. Please Contact your Administrator.

But I’ve found a significant difference in the resolution. While it is enough to simply start the Managed Metadata Web Service, you should run IISRESET in the case of User Profile Service.
