Hi everyone, my name is Bill Kulterman and welcome to my course Configuring the User Profile Service Application in SharePoint 2016.

I am an E-Learning Courseware Author for the Information Technology industry.

In this course, we learn how to create the User Profile Service Application and synchronize user profile information from Active Directory using AD Import. We will then learn how to Setup and install Microsoft Identity Manger and how to use it for user profile synchronization with SharePoint 2016.

Some of the major topics that we will cover include:

  1. Creating the User Profile Service Application.
  2. Preparing for and performing an AD Import of user information from Active Directory into the User Profile Service Application.
  3. Installing Microsoft Identity Manager which includes the installation of an instance of SQL Server.
  4. Preparing for and performing the synchronization of user information from Active Directory into SharePoint 2016 using Microsoft Identity Manager.
By the end of this course you’ll know how to create the My Site Host, the User Profile Service Application and two ways of getting user profile information into SharePoint 2016, those being AD Import and using Microsoft Identity Manager.

Before beginning the course, you should be familiar with Active Directory, SharePoint, and PowerShell.

I hope you’ll join me on this journey to learn the User Profile Service Application, AD Import, and Microsoft Identity Manager with my course, Configuring the User Profile Service Application in SharePoint 2016 at Pluralsight.
