I'm getting this error message in CA. I checked the timer service and it is up and running. I tried with "Repair Automatically" but use.

ULS Error

The following services are managed by SharePoint, but their running state does not match what SharePoint expects: FIMSynchronizationService. This can happen if a service crashes or if an administrator starts or stops a service using a non-SharePoint interface. If SharePoint-managed services do not match their expected running state, SharePoint will be unable to correctly distribute work to the service.. Automatic repair is being attempted.

  • Have you checked the Windows event logs as well? The Application and System log may contain relevant information.

  • Hi Nadeem, unfortunately there isn't any errors in the system log. I've tried the steps in this blog but it is not fixing the problem.

I solved similar problem by starting search service from PowerShell:

$host1 = Get-SPEnterpriseSearchServiceInstance -Identity "YourServerName"
Start-SPEnterpriseSearchServiceInstance -Identity $host1
