I am having trouble with my exchange server.  It is running windows server 2003, exchange 2003 Black Berry Enterprise.  Last night we had a storm and i got a call this morning stating that the users could not login.  I checked the server and i get the following errors in event viewer.

The server was unable to add the virtual root '/' for the directory '/Internet Newsgroups' due to the following error: The parameter is incorrect.  The data is the error code

The Microsoft Exchange Information Store service terminated with service-specific error 0 (0x0).
