FIM Server not starting event ID 2 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    FIM service is not starting , when trying to start errors out in Application log

    in this server am using WSS 3.0 with basic setup and portal and service feature

    Log Name: Application

    Source: Microsoft.ResourceManagement.ServiceHealthSource

    Event ID : 2

    Level : Error

    User : N/A

    The Forefront Identity Manager Service could not bind to its endpoints. This failure prevents clients from communicating with the Web services.

    A most likely cause for the failure is another service, possibly another instance of Forefront Identity Manager Service, has already bound to the endpoint. Another, less likely cause, is that the account under which the service runs does not have permission to bind to endpoints.

    Ensure that no other processes have bound to that endpoint and that the service account has permission to bind endpoints. Further, check the application configuration file to ensure the Forefront Identity Manager Service is binding to the correct endpoints.

  • The FIM Service endpoints are tcp:5725 and 5726 -- among other things, you might check netstat to see if something else is listening there.
