This article has been posted on TNWiki at: FIM2010 Troubleshooting: MIISActivate – FIM Sync service terminated with service-specific error %%-2146234334.


Failing over a FIM Sync Server to the standby FIM sync server using MIISActivate.

After using successfully MIISActivate, the FIMSync Service fails to start and logs an error in the eventviewer.


You’ll see 2 error messages in the event viewer, erro 7024 and error 6324.

Error 7024


This error is pretty similar or exactly like the error described in the following Wiki article:
