Sadly that didn't help.

But I have worked out what was wrong, the partion was just near to full.  Move some files which where not neaded any more and restarted serves and at started and it is working fine.

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

Are you still running exchange 5.5 sp2. You should upgrade your sp2 to sp4 ASAP. Do you know why your partition was full and where di you delete it the files from ? hope you did not delete your exchange transaction log files such as 00..log, 001.log.

Are you backing up the exchange database to flush your log files and commit the changes to the database ? Iam asking these questions, cause you can go back to the same problem before you kow it.

cheers bro
