User Profile Service: View the management agent run history for details.

Do you still use FIM for User Profiles in SharePoint 2013?
If requirements allow, I highly recommend to switch to SharePoint Active Directory Import

If not, you may be lost with intricacy of FIM configuration. I hope this How to start User Profile Synchronization service post alleviate some configuration pain.

One the Sp2013 uses FIM, and I recently found an error message in the event log:

The management agent "MOSSAD-User Profile Synchronisation" failed on run profile "DS_FULLIMPORT" because of connectivity issues.

 Additional Information
 Discovery Errors       : "0"
 Synchronization Errors : "0"
 Metaverse Retry Errors : "0"
 Export Errors          : "0"
 Warnings               : "0"

 User Action
 View the management agent run history for details.

And was wondering where IS this agent run history.

Here it is:
C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office Servers\15.0\Synchronization Service\UIShell
