FIM Web Service not starting RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    Recently our FIM web service quit starting in our dev environment. I notice the change when the domain controllers were re-ip'd. When we try to start them manually we receive the following error.

    "The Forefront Identity Manager Service service on Local Computer started and then stopped. Some services stop automatically if they are not in use by other services or programs."

    I am baffled at this point as we did not reference the IPs of AD when we configured our dev-environment, so nothing should have changed. At this point I'm not really sure where to begin looking; would this be an issue with the SharePoint configuration, access for the service account on the server, or something else. I have validated that the service account we are using is unlocked and it has the correct password. Unfortunately there is nothing in event viewer when the error is thrown.

  • I found that a config file was somehow renamed and had an extra .config at the end of it. After fixing the file name the service started up no problems. Path to config file below:

    C:\Program Files\Microsoft Forefront Identity Manager\2010\Service\Microsoft.ResourceManagement.Service.exe.config
