Need Help...User Profile Sync Error (ma-extension-error) RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I have a problem with UPS for Sharepoint 2010. Sync works fine gets all the changes from AD(I see by running miisclient.exe) but when it comes to updating SP user profiles it gives the following error. I ran miisclient.exe and observed the stages and saw that error. I googled around but there is no solution found. The service exported 153 profiles initially but after some updates in AD user accounts sync started to give the following error. updated profiles contains some info about department, title, etc. and they contain some Turkish characters. Especially the title field causes the error, if in AD I leave blank that title field sync is fine again. When I fill it it fails. I am trying to make it work for 1 week :( Please somebody help me with that. Thank you very much.
