Event ID 6398 – User Profile Service Application – Operation is not valid due to the current state of the object

Filed Under (SharePoint 2010) by Just An Admin on 19-04-2012

We were solving a SharePoint 2010 Timer Job issue reported in our event logs when we encountered one other failed Timer job. For this we had to review all failed Timer jobs:

  • ¬†Open the Central Admin
  • Select Monitoring from the left menu
  • Select Review job definitions from the left menu
  • Select Job history from the left menu
  • Select Failed jobs from the View pull down on the right top side

Besides the failed Timer job we were looking for, we also encountered the following error:



User Profile Service Application – User Profile Incremental Synchronization

Operation is not valid due to the current state of the object.

The event viewer showed us this reference of the issue:

The Execute method of job definition Microsoft.Office.Server.UserProfiles.UserProfileImportJob (ID 78c129da-bfe7-44e1-bf7a-23fdb3f48a42) threw an exception. More information is included below.

Operation is not valid due to the current state of the object.

After trying a few different changes in our SharePoint 2010 setup, we finally resorted to Google and found the following article: http://www.fewlines4biju.com/2011/03/error-occurred-in-deployment-step_23.html

After following the suggested steps we found that our Front End server was lister twice; once by its NetBIOS name and once by its full DNS name. The full DNS name had no installed features and displayed a red ‘no services running’ message.

After deleting the server with the full DNS name, we never encountered the error again.
