After running this script, we needed to perform a restart of the MIM Service server. Our scenario required the deletion of an application log called Identity Management Team because the LogName in the gist caused a collision. Also, we ran this script as the MIM Service service account in our final state that triggered event log entries.

Hey Kent,

Check my fork for a dynamic build of the .config file based on the FIMService regkeys.

@bpalfaro Showed one way to get a dynamic path. Another option is something like this on line 11...
$Config = [xml] Get-Content ((Get-Process -Name Microsoft.ResourceManagment.Service).Path).config
