I am running Windows Server 2003 SP1 and updated to Exchange 2003 SP1.  Now Exchange won't start.  Some of the services do not start and give the error 1068.  IIS also will not start.  Any ideas?

Hi,

Could you be a little bit more specific?? What kidn of services do you get these errors with?? What kind of upgrade did you do??? Was it an upgrade from W2K Exchange to W2K3 Exchange??

Sorry I was so short.  I just added SP1 to Exchange.  It is Microsoft Exchange Routing Engine, POP3 and IMAP4 that give the "1068: The dependency service or group failed to start" error.  Also, IIS Admin service is not started and when I try to strat that I get "Windows could not start the IIS Admin Service on Local Computer." and it says to check the event log.  However, in the event log the errors are showing up as, "The RPC Server is unavailable."

Hi,

1068 errors means that another service where these services are depending on isn't started. Looks like the Exchange System Attendant or the Information Store, do you see anything regarding these two services??

Both the System Attendant and Information Store are started.  The 3 that I mentioned above are the only Exchange services that are not started.

I have now also noticed that if I go to Properties on any of these ervices and try to look at the Dependencies Tab it automatically pops up "Win32: RPC service is unreachable".  It really seems like all the errors I am getting come back to this, but I don't know what to do about it.  This machine is the DC and RPC is running?  Help!

Hi,

I'm not able to find anything on the subject. Are you sure the aren't any events in event viewer??? We need a link to start from.. Also, normally combining an exchange server with a DC isn't best practice.. This might be the cause of your problem.. I would anyhowes try to do a reïnstall of the SP1. Maybe something went wrong here...

Well, MS ended up admitting to some major bugs with SP1 and Exchange.  In the interest of time, we ended up reloading the server to get it back into working order.  This question can be closed.
