Detach - Attach FIM DataBases RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi everyone,

    I got an issue with FIM2010, I ran out of space in the HDD where the SQL DBs are stored and I tried to detach and attach the DBs following up the next procedure:

    1. I stopped the FIM Service and the FIM Synchronization services.
    2. I detached the 2 DBs.
    3. I saved the configuration and the log files of the 2 DBs in other HDD.
    4. I attached the 2 DBs from the other HDD.
    5. I started the FIM Synchronization service and worked fine, but when I try to start the FIM Service service, it can’t start and ther’s  a warning saying this:

    “Some services stop automatically if they are note in use by other services or programs”

    Can you help me solve this issue?

    Thank you very much in advance,

  • Is it FIM 2010 R2? If yes - go to database option and enable Broker service for database.
