Something went wrong following a site


Came across the following issue when trying to follow a site in a SharePoint 2016 environment.


UserProfileDBCache_WCFLogging :: ProfileDBCacheServiceClient.GetUserData threw exception: There are no addresses available for this application.


My sites were available and accessible by the users. I checked the User Profile Service Application and it was accessible as well and settings for My sites were correct. That lead me to review the the services running in the farm. I found that the “User Profile Service” was stopped on the farm.  I started the service and completed and IIS reset. Now users can follow sites successfully.
