Cannot access User Profile Service Application after provisioning Synchronization Service

If you are having problems accessing the User Profile Service Application after you provision the User Profile Synchronization Service, such as the receiving the following rather unhelpful Correlation ID when trying to access the User Profile Service Application :
The answer is nice and easy – just perform an IIS Reset. For some reason if you have Central Administration on the same server, you will not be able to access the User Profile Service Application management area until you do an IISreset. This is one of the steps mentioned in Spence Harbar‘s excellent article on setting up the User Profile Synchronization but it still manages to catch me out from time to time.
In the event you are having other problems with User Profile Synchronization I recommend you visit the blog post I mentioned earlier, it is effectively the bible for setting up User Profile Synch.
