HostId is not registered SharePoint 2013 User Profile Service
When configuring the User Profile Service for a client I was unable to the start the User Profile Synchronization Service on the application server. The service would stay in the “Starting” state for 10 minutes and eventually return to a “Stopped” state. Being that I have done this configuration 1,000 plus times (wish I was exaggerating but probably not) I thought maybe I got sloppy and skipped a step so I went ahead and started from scratch but ended up with the same issue.
