Exchange 5.5 Service will no longer start
Posted on 2003-12-04
For some unkown reason our Exchange 5.5 services will no longer start. I was able to get the System Attendant and the Directory started but everytime i attempt to start the other 3 i recieve these errors:
Microsoft Exchange Information Store:
Could not start the Microsoft Exchange Information Store service on \\server.
Error 2186: The service is not responding to the control function.

I've gone through and run a consistancy check on the Information store and am getting them as consistant. I can't figure out where the problem started or how to fix it. Let me know if there is anymore information needed.
