I followed the instruction on how to install exchange server 2003 and ran into a problem.

The install went fine but after the server reboot the Exchange services will not start.

From the Service window when trying to start the service:

Windows could not start the Microsoft Exchange Information Store on the local computer

From the EVENT LOG:
Source: MSExchangeDSAcces                       Catagory: Topology
Type: Error                                                 Event ID: 2114

Prrocess MAD.EXE (PID=3456), Topology Discovery Failed, error 0x80040a02

Could you guys help me out??
