FIM MA – “failed to retrieve the schema”

Having made a couple of changes to my Portal config recently, I’m attempting to update the FIM MA schema to start populating the new attributes from the Metaverse – the only thing is that when I attempt to refresh the schema, I get a failure with the error message “failed to retrieve the schema”.

Having had a quick look on Technet, I validate the passwords, ensure that the fim ma account (and fim sync account) both have sufficient access to the FIM Service DB and then notice that the local drive is actually full.

After a couple of logs get cleared down to free some disk space, the schema refresh starts working again – obvious really…….
