Exchange 2003 Information Store

We have just set up a new server running 2003 server Enterprise edition and Exchange 2003.

For some reason the Microsoft Exchange Information Store service will not start. The error returned is:

"Windows could not start the Microsoft Exchange Information Store on Local Computer. For more information, review the system event log..."

Event viewer shows the following:

Source: Service Control Manager
Event ID: 7024

The Microsoft Exchange Information Store service terminated with service-specific error 0 (0x0).

If I reinstall Exchange, this solves the problem. However if we reboot the server the problem then returns. I have searched the net far and wide but to no avail. Any additional help would be greatly appreciated.

Have you got antivirus installed? Sometimes this can cause problems if it's set to scan certain exchange files, logs and databases etc that should be excluded and if the av starts up before exchange does.

I removed NAV and did a reboot but this did not fix the problem.
