Search for any *.txt files.

Usually in the form of Servername_xxxx_01_date.txt

Figured it out...

When I applied several updates (nothing had been updated) BES lost/changed several services "Start up as" attributes.  

Most of the BB services should start using a BES admin user... the updates changed that to the domain admin.  So, stopped services, changed back to the BES admin and all is well.
