I am trying to configured new SharePoint 2013 SP1 farm environment on one VM and another VM has sql server 2014. I am getting an issue when trying to start FIM service and FIM synchronization service form window service panel. Can anyone please point me to step by step process of setting up FIM services. Additional knowledge on what it does will be even more helpful. Thanks Hitesh

  • Please look (search this forum) for all the other questions asked about FIM.
