Error on manage user properties page–your search encountered an error

Hi all!

A colleague, told me that he was facing an strange error in when he tried to modify some user properties in a SharePoint Server 2013 – he got the following message “Your search encountered an error. If the problem persists, contact the portal site administrator”

Firstly, I checked search but I saw no errors in there – it seems that the error description is not really guiding you in the correct direction. The solution was as simply as starting the ForeFront Identity Manager Service in the services CMD.
