cmd as administrator:
I ran the following commands:
1. stsadm -o enumservices > c:\services.txt – Those gave me a list of services and showed me what the name of the service I need to stop is.
2. stsadm -o provisionservice -action stop -servicetype “Microsoft.Office.Server.Administration.ProfileSynchronizationService, Microsoft.Office.Server.UserProfiles, Version=22.214.171.124, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=71e9bce111e9429c” -servicename FIMSynchronizationService
The second command stopped the service.
Then check the service status and this fixed it.
