I am getting this error (No dsml attribute matching mvAttribute value) when trying to configure Synchronization Connections to my AD on SP 2010 installed on 2008 R2 server on a VM. Any idea what is wrong here? I am also getting this error in my logs (maybe it is related?)

Log Name:      System

The machine-default permission settings do not grant Local Activation permission for the COM Server application with CLSID {000C101C-0000-0000-C000-000000000046}
 and APPID {000C101C-0000-0000-C000-000000000046}
 to the user NT AUTHORITY\NETWORK SERVICE SID (S-1-5-20) from address LocalHost (Using LRPC). This security permission can be modified using the Component Services administrative tool.

This means, that you have to configure local activation permissions of IIS WAMREG admin Service for your farm account.

Open Component Services/Computers/My Computer/DCOM Config/IIS WAMREG admin Service , Properties –> Security tab

You'll see all controls are inactive?!?!
Open “regedit” and search for
Right click, “Permissions” and click “Advanced” button, open “Owner” tab

Select some of the listed names or browse for another user or group and finally click Apply

Now, you (or your group) can change the permissions for modification of the service

After “OK”, try to reopen the “Component Services” console and open the properties window of IIS WAMREG admin Service. now the window enables you to

Amazing response!!! I wish all answers would be like that. Before assigning points quick question: why do I need to do that? Is it because I installed IIS as a local admin only? Thanks

Yes, this happens when the SharePoint service accounts don't have the necessary permissions (Local Activation to the IIS WAMREG admin service).  When you installed SP as a local admin, that user may not have had the appropriate rights to the rest of the farm and it's spiderweb like tangents.  Glad you liked the response.  Good luck with SP 2010.  I hope it's everything Microsoft's touting it to be. :-)
