An Exchange Server could not be found in the domain

I'm running Microsoft Exchange 2003 w/sp1 Administrator tools on a clean XP Service pack 2 install.
It has been working without a problem for at least a year, maybe a year and a half. Now I'm getting the following message when I attempt to make any changes to a user's Mailbox settings, e-mail address or anything like that via ADUC.

The error I'm receiving is:

*************************************************************
An Exchange Server could not be found in the domain.
Check if the Microsoft System Attendant Service is running on the Exchange Server.

ID no: 10308a2
Microsoft Active Directory - Exchange Extension
*************************************************************

Any ideas of what might cause this besides the System Attendant?

Help really would be appreciated,
John

Thanks

I don't know how I missed that. I searched both the MS knowledgebase and all of technet for the ID # 10308a2  & "Exchange server could not be found in the domain"

Nicely done!
