I have an administrator that thought it would be a good idea to move the Exchange AD objects to a different container within AD.  Now SA and IS won't start.

I have tried using ADSIEdit to reset security permissions on the proper containers and that didn't work.  I tried running forest prep and domain prep and those didn't work either.  Below are the errors that i get in the event logs.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Would moving the objects back to the containers in which they were originally created solve my issue?  I have not tried a full re-install at this point either.

How long did you wait after preping the domain and forest? Have you restarted the services since?

Simon,

I waited 30 mins between each prep.  I have resolved the issue by moving the objects back to the USERS container.  Why I didn't try that in the first place is beyond me.  

Do you know of any utilities that can examine AD and make recommendations as to what is wrong, suggest fixes for security issues, and what objects can be removed?

You will need to post in the support topic area (top right corner) with a link to the question and what you want to do. The moderators will do the rest.
