User Profile Synchronization Service on multiple servers


Quick answer: you cannot run User Profile Synchronization Service on more than one SharePoint Server.

If you start this service on server #1 and then start it on server #2 the service will be stopped on server #1 and started on server #2.

So for the sake of availlibility, if server #1 is down you have to manually start the service on server #2.

The User Profile Service instead can be started on multiple servers.
