I am running Exhange 5.5 on a server with 1gig RAM. Everything WAS running fine until it recently stopped running for no real apparent reason. Upon investigation, i noticed the following message in Event Viewer: MICROSOFT EXHANGE EVENT SERVICE DEPENDS ON THE MS EXHANGE INFORMATION STORE SERVICE WHICH FAILED TO START BECAUSE OF THE FOLLOWING ERROR.
In another event message, the following: THE SERVICE HAS RETURNED THE A SERVICE SPECIFIC ERROR CODE: 4294966278

This error can occur when there are numerous uninitialized pages or if the computer that Exchange Server is installed on is having hardware problems. Some of these problems can be related to a RAID controller failure,bad sectors on a hard drive or that that the private information store file has developed "page errors" over time.

Check your System Log in Event viewer. Are there any error messages related to a RAID controller or disk problems?

Ouch..  what is your HD brand, is it plugged on a raid controller? Give us details.. you can always run chkdisk.

Right click on your C, properties, select tools tab, click on error checking. Select the checkbox for badsectors, and fix..  and press start.. at next reboot, it will scan your disk.

The event ID is 5000,  Working in an NT 4 enviroment.  Plannned to upgrade servers soon.   HD brand is DELL.  Raid controller is on, with raid 5.   Would it be possible to load a 2003 server stand alone and install exchange 5.5 and import the database?  Wits end,  ass on line.  Any help would be greatly thanksful

Well since you don't seem to like the progression of help here, then why don't you put in a call to Microsoft Product Support Services and pay them $250 to resolve your issue.

Sorry about the previous comment. I misread your previous post. I have seen problems in the past with some Dell servers. If it has a PERC-2 controller card then there was a firmware update for this.
What would happen is that in heavy I/O applications the controller card would create errors. Exchange is a an application that generates heavy I/O activity.

After you fix any hardware issues you have, you will have to do the following:
Copy the PRIV.EDB and PUB.EDB to another machine.
Run:
ESEUTIL /P /ISPRIV
ESEUTIL /P /ISPUB
ISINTEG -FIX -PRI -TEST ALLTESTS
ISINTEG -FIX -PUB -TEST ALLTESTS

If the hardware issues are not resolved first then the same thing will probably happen again.
