Active Directory and Office 365 Won't Sync

We use Windows Azure Active Directory Sync Service to synchronize the user accounts in our AD with Office 365.  Currently the Azure AD Sync Service is stopped and attempts to restart it have been unsuccessful.  The Event Log says it won't start because the Forefront Identity Manager Synchronization Service is not running and that the Azure AD Sync Service is dependent upon it.

Attempts to restart the FIM Aync Serivce have been unsuccessful. When attempting to start it Event ID 7024 appears in the system log in the event viewer and says "the FIM Synchronization Service failed to start with server specific error %%2149781504".  Event ID 6028 simultaneously appears in the APP log in the event viewer and says, "The server encryption keys could not be accessed.  Verify that the service account has permissions to the following registry key, hkey local machine\microsoft\forefront\2010\synchronization service."  The service account the FIM Sync service uses does have full permissions to that key.

Any information on what we can do to get the FIM Sync Service running so that the Azure AD Sync service will run would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks in advance.

Just reinstall it, or use the newly released AadSync tool: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/azure/dn790204.aspx

Otherwise, check the local groups (FIMSyncAdmins and/or ADSyncAdmins) and make sure the account running the service is added .
