I am trying to connect to the Synchronization Service Manager Client (from C:Program FilesMicrosoft Office Servers14.0Synchronization ServiceUIShellmiisclient.exe) to verify that my user profiles are correctly being synchronized from my AD and I get the following error:

Unable to connect to the Synchronization Service.
Some possible reasons are:
1) The service is not started.
2) Your account is not a member of a required security group.
See the Synchronization Service documentation for details.


I am logged in as the service account which is a farm administrator. 

Any ideas what is happening?  This worked fine before I re-installed SharePoint 2010 on the box.
