Setting the UPA Incremental Timer Job to Hourly Results in “No Schedule Set”

If you set the User Profile Services’ Incremental Timer Job to run more frequently than “Daily”, the User Profile Service Application will indicate “No Schedule Set”:

This is because the code that reviews the timer job doesn’t take into account the Incremental job running more often than daily.

While I don’t believe this will impact the job running more than once a day, it will impact the display of the schedule on the User Profile Service Application page.  Depending on the size of the organization, other jobs running, and performance issues with the Synchronization database, it is probably unwise to run the User Profile Incremental Synchronization timer job more than once per day.
