Known Issues (regressions in Dec.CU):
“You cannot create an AD DS synchronization connection … after Dec.CU 2010 installed (KB 2490381)”
In some cases the given workaround may not help or no AD-connection at all can be created.
If so, try to recreate your UPA, do a reboot and then recreate your AD-connection.
“You cannot create an Active Directory sync connection when the NetBiosDomainNamesEnabled property is set to true“.
It fails with “Unable to process create message” error.
Both of these issues have been verified as resolved in the February 2011 CU for SharePoint 2010.
