I have two exchange servers, with windows 2003. One server is a backend and the other is a front end. I install symantec antivirus with email protections. I come in this morning, users can not access OMA, and when we log in to the machines it freezes at applying computer settings. I have tried to disable the service from the recovery con. still same problem. Does anyone know about this error, or a way to fix it as fast as possible.
