Event ID 6398: The Execute method of job definition Microsoft.Office.Server.UserProfiles.LMTRepopulationJob (ID xxx) threw an exception


Issue:

Event ID 6398 in the application log stating – Unexpected exception in FeedCacheService.IsRepopulationNeeded: Unable to create a DataCache. SPDistributedCache is probably down.

When you look in Central Admin at Services on Server, you see that Distributed Cache is started.

In SharePoint Management Shell, you run the following

Get-Cache

Notice there are no other cache containers except default. There should be 10 other cache containers which is why the errors are occurring in the Application Event log.

Resolution:

You need to add the cache containers manually.

Run in the SharePoint Management Shell or Windows PowerShell
