AttributeNameViolatesSchema InvalidRepresentationException

I recently added a new attribute and binding in the FIM portal. After refreshing the FIM MA schema I added an attribute flow to this new attribute and received AttributeNameViolatesSchema InvalidRepresentationException exceptions.

Not sure why, but restarting the FIM Service, FIM Sync Service and doing an iisreset fixed the problem. Perhaps the FIM Sync Service restart wasn’t necessary… But I’m not sure at this point.

Had a weird situation for a few days where all update or delete requests to the FIM portal were timing out–but retrieving data worked just fine.

Running this command against the FIMService DB seems to have helped:

exec sp_updatestats ‘resample’

Several sites led me to the solution here: http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/sqlserver/en-US/f0692fe1-f2e1-4cb9-9fdb-0cf27077bc39/update-stats-with-full-scan-on-database
