Microsoft Exchange Information Store Service will not start
Posted on 2006-05-04
We are currently running a Windows 2003 domain with 1 Windows 2003 Std and 2 Windows 2000 Std Domain Controllers. We added the Windows 2003 server about 3 weeks ago. Transferred all FSMO roles to the Windows 2003 Server after prepping the domain for it. The Windows 2003 Server is currently running DHCP and is the Fileserver. DNS was left on the other Windows 2000 Domain Controller. Installed Exchange 2003 on it 4 days ago, which the installation went fine with no errors. Now the Microsoft Information Store Service will not start, dissallowing the Database to Mount. The name of the Windows 2003 Server is ATHFSP02 and the old DC was ATHFSP01.
The following errors come up in the event viewer:
Event ID: 2103
