This User Profile Application's connection is currently not available in SharePoint 2010

I got this error while opening user profile service in SharePoint 2010 "This User Profile Application's connection is currently not available. The Application Pool or User Profile Service may not have been started. Please contact your administrator.".

There can be 2 reasons for this error, either the user profile service is not started or there are some problem in the application pools.

So to verify the 1st cause open the SharePoint 2010 central administration. From the System Settings section go to Manage services on server. This will open the Services on Server list. From there check for the User Profile Service weather it is already started or not. Even if that is started try to stop and Start the User Profile Service again.

If the above approch did not solve the issue. then check all the application pools and check wether all are started or any of them stoped. If any of them stoped they try to restart them and then do an IISRESET and it should work now.
