I am trying to sync SharePoint with AD.
When starting FIMsynchronizationService the below error message appears:
"windows could not start the forefront identity manager >synchronization service on local computer. for more >information, review the system event log. if this is a non->microsoft service contact the service vendor, and refers to >service specific error code -2146234334"
The FIMService didn't start until I modified its registry records; when using "provided by settingsProvider.dll" value for databaseName and databaseServer it didn't work.
The database and SharePoint are on the same server. The sql instance is Service Pack 1. SharePoint 2010. The sql connection is established (checked through Data Source). Automatic Delay didn't work. No helpful information in the event log.
