MOSS MA not found
In SharePoint 2010, Once I have configured a User Profile Synchronization Service service, I tried to edit the User Profile Synchronization Connection settings, but the connectors are not found as shown below!

Actually, this issue usually occurs if the Forefront Identity Manager Service is stopped. so we will investigate this issue by going though the following:

- First, I should check the User Profile Sync service status to make sure that it’s started and working properly by doing the following:
- Open Central Administration > Below System Settings > Click on Manage Services On Server.
In my case, the the User Profile Synchronization Service status is Started.
If the User Profile Synchronization Service status was stopped and you got any issue to start it, so you should check to investigate the issue as mentioned at
