Whenever I initiate a manual mailbox management or when the system does an automatic management process, I get the following event in the app log:
Event Type: Information
Event Source: MSExchangeSA
Event Category: Mailbox Management
Event ID: 9209
Time: 12:36:00 PM
Microsoft Exchange Server Mailbox Manager was interrupted before processing was complete - error no = The server is not operational..%2
And I get the following report email when it "finishes":
Subject: The Microsoft Exchange Server Mailbox Manager on SILAS stopped processing due to an error.
The Microsoft Exchange Server Mailbox Manager has completed processing mailboxes

This is a production Exchange 2003 Server running on a Windows 2003 DC. All research I've done so far alludes to DNS issues, but I seem to be in line with typical settings and it has run fine till it stopped running the mailbox management process nearly a month ago. This machine (the Exchange server, called "SILAS") runs DNS along with another DC (called "PAUL") that is the operations master. The nic on SILAS has itself as the primary DNS server and PAUL as the secondary and the DNS settings on PAUL are opposite.
For what it's worth, I get a similar error when I try to right-click on a user's mailbox in the mailbox store container of Exchange System Manager:
The server is not operational.
ID no: 8007203a
Exchange System Manager
Any help would be appreciated! I need to get the management proccess working again or else my users' mailboxes will become bloated.
