Fixing Error: An error has occurred while accessing the SQL Server database or the SharePoint Server Search service

After re-pro-vising the User Profile Service Application in my SharePoint 2010 farm, and attempting to Configure Synchronization Connections I was receiving this error below that was preventing me from establishing a connection with AD.

An error has occurred while accessing the SQL Server database or the SharePoint Server Search service

To clear this error you simply run an IISReset on the server that hosts the User Profile Service Application.  Usually IIS recycles itself after pro-vising a new service app but in some cases it does not.  After running IISRESET the error should disappear and you can add your connection.
