Description:
The SharePoint Health Analyzer detected an error.  One or more services have started or stopped unexpectedly.
The following services are managed by SharePoint, but their running state does not match what SharePoint expects: FIMSynchronizationService.  This can happen if a service crashes or if an administrator starts or stops a service using a non-SharePoint interface.  If SharePoint-managed services do not match their expected running state, SharePoint will be unable to correctly distribute work to the service.
SharePoint was unable to automatically repair this error.

To stop or start a service managed by SharePoint, use the SharePoint service management interface in the SharePoint Central Administration Site.  If a service has crashed, restart the service manually on the affected servers by running "net start [service name]" from a command prompt. For more information about this rule, see "http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkID=142683".

CONGRATS!  I plan on taking the 1st of the two exams in a view months.  Any pointers or good study material as in exam prep?

By uninstalling the user profile service will this effect anything else?  This is a live production server and I can't have it down for a long period of time.

User profiles. People search. (My sites?)  We found we had to re-build from scratch.If you are importing records from AD then it will need re-configuring. Users can continue to use.



Exam prep - SharePoint 2010 admin guide and read thoroughly and there are links to further reading in the book. And learn Powershell.

If I uninstall User Profile Services, user shouldnt lose their My Sites, correct because the database is on another server.  Once I reinstall the user profile services I should be able to connect back to the previous database, correct?
This is the best money I have ever spent. I cannot not tell you how many times these folks have saved my bacon. I learn so much from the contributors.

The expert gave me suggestions but what she suggested was not necessary to do.  I contacted Microsoft and they helped me solve the issue.
