  • The key simply secures the existing FIMSynchronizationService database. If you are attempting to restore MPRs, Sets, and SRs - those are part of the FIMService database.  Follow the FIM Backup and Restore Guide on how to restore the FIMService and its components.

  • Hey Jeff,

    Thanks for the reply.

    This link is really helpfull. Howwever, i have restore the databases (FIM service and FIM sync), only configuration file, sql agents and registry  key needs to backed up.

    I thought backing up and restoring only databases will be enough. :(
