I installed sharepoint 2010 on a 2008 R2 server. I used SQL Express R2. The problem is that after I start  the User Profile Synchronization Service  in Sharepoint, I get the following event in the application log:

 - <Event xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/win/2004/08/events/event">
- <System>
  <Provider Name="Microsoft.ResourceManagement.ServiceHealthSource" />
  <EventID Qualifiers="0">22</EventID>
  <Level>2</Level>
  <Task>0</Task>
  <Keywords>0x80000000000000</Keywords>
  <TimeCreated SystemTime="2010-09-06T16:25:18.000000000Z" />
  <EventRecordID>9209</EventRecordID>
  <Channel>Application</Channel>
  <Computer>QTMAIL1.QTTechnologies.local</Computer>
  <Security />
  </System>
- <EventData>
  <Data>The Forefront Identity Manager Service cannot connect to the SQL Database Server. The SQL Server could not be contacted. The connection failure may be due to a network failure, firewall configuration error, or other connection issue. Additionally, the SQL Server connection information could be configured incorrectly. Verify that the SQL Server is reachable from the Forefront Identity Manager Service computer. Ensure that SQL Server is running, that the network connection is active, and that the firewall is configured properly. Last, verify the connection information has been configured properly. This configuration is stored in the Windows Registry.</Data>
  </EventData>
  </Event>

The other applications in Sharepoint seem to find the SQL server just fine. Is there supposed to be a "FIM Service" datatebase in SQl? If so, I don't have one.

How can I get  the FIM service to connect to SQL?

Thanks,

Charles

Have you bought FIM? Or have you had a trial version of FIM installed in your environment previously?

Are you using SharePoint Foundation?
The user profile synch service does not work with foundation.

I installed SharePoint Server 2010 Enterprise Client Access License features trail version, that I got from  the Microsoft  Sharepoint site. I installed it as a farm. This is a clean install on this server. This server is not a Domain Controller. I followed the install instructions at:
http://blogs.msdn.com/b/mtc/archive/2009/12/08/how-to-setup-sharepoint-2010-public-beta-user-profile-synchronization-with-active-directory-on-windows-server-2008-r2.aspx.
I also instalIed Project server 2010 on this server. It requires Sharepoint Enterprise. Is there a way to determine if I am useing the right Sharepoint version?

I was able to resolve the issue. I had to run the configuration wizard again after I had enabled the user profile synronization service.

Interesting - not sure I have ever had to do that. Nice work though if it is now sorted.
