In this article I have explain about how to synchronize AD Services user profile and groups into SharePoint 2013. Follow below steps:
Open SharePoint 2013 central administration and Under system settings -> Click Manage services on the server. Navigate through User Profile Synchronization Service -> Click Start if its not started. While starting it will ask to enter a valid service account credential.
So now the service has been successfully started now.
Then Open Manage service application under service application and click on User profile service application. On this page you are able to see the default number of user profile.
Lets we are now going to create the connection to synchronize the profile from Active directory domain services.
