DirSync runs just fine upon initial install or re-install. However after a reboot the Forefront Identity Manager Synchronization Service does not start and will not start. It gives an error
Windows could not start the Forefront Identity Manager Synchronization Service service on the Local Computer. Error 1069: The service did not start due to a logon failure.
The service is set to run as a local account named AAD_###########. I can reinstall DirSync and it works but this is not a long term solution.
If I try and open "C:\Program Files\Windows Azure Active Directory Sync\SYNCBUS\Synchronization Service\UIShell\miisclient.exe"
It gives an error stating
Unable to connect to the Synchronization Service.
Some possible reasons are:
1) The service is not started
2) Your account is not a member of the required security group.
See the Synchronization Service documentation for details.
