System.ServiceModel.EndpointNotFoundException in OWSTIMER.EXE

I started getting this error every five minutes after the timer service would kick off.

An Unhandled exception ('System.ServiceModel.EndpointNotFoundException') occurred in OWSTIMER.EXE

Turns out that the error was due to the Forefront Identity Manager Service not being started.  After starting the service the error goes away.


  1. Thank you Richard. My Sharepoint started to raise that Exception after Service Pack 1 installation. You solution solve it.
