Help With BES after Exchange crash

My Exchange server crashed on me over last weekend, and I ended up having to reinstall exchange. Now my BES 3.6 is not working, the BES service will not start and will report an unknown error 0 when you try to start the service. I will admit I am not the most knowledgeable about this BES server, but can anyone point me into a direction I need to take? Do I need to delete and re-add my server under the BES console or is the problem deeper than that? I can access the Exchange system manager on the BES server and made sure that the permissions were still there for the delegation and for the store. But beyond that I am lost. Anyone’s help would be greatly appreciated!

Cleanest way to fix this would be to uninstal/reinstall BES.....this could be a pain if you have a lot of users, but you will probably have to re-add them regardless of your approach.

Before I did that though, I would start the server in safe mode and see if I could start the BES services there.

After a support call to RIM they basically walked me thru a rebuild.
