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.
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.
