I was trying to create a vbs script to run syncs in FIM and found the start sync loop scripts in the Microsoft lab.
I modified them and tried to run them in my dev environment, but immediately saw the error: “SWBemServicesEx Not Found”.
It turns out I had done two things wrong:
1. Misspelled the name of one of my MAs.
2. Was trying to reference an MA that didn’t exist. (I hadn’t created it yet in this dev environment.)
It’s a misleading error and sent me off trying to enable components and such when all I needed to do was learn how to spell.
