User Profile Service not starting

Today I faced a weird problem. This time I was preparing a SharePoint farm for one of our developers, but when I was trying to start the User Profile Service App, it doesn’t start. At the begginig I was mad, because I made this process tons of times, and it was the first time that this service was driving me crazy.

When I tried to start the service, I checked the Event Viewer log to see what is happening and saw the following error:

The server encountered an unexpected error and stopped.

Forefront Identity Manager 4.0.2450.47”

I have to say that this machine was a SharePoint 2013 RTM with any CU installed and configured with a SQL Server 2014.

So, after applied CU April 2013, the problem was solved

Hope that helps
