Exchange 2007 on DC slow to reboot -  is there a newer batch file available and tested?

Does anyone know how to create a shutdown batch file specifically for Exchange 2007 running on a Domain Controller?  I have used exshutdown.zip created for Exchange 2003 but there are quite a number of new services that Exchange 2007 uses and the shutdown order and service names are beyond my knowledge.

Here's a link to the original exshutdown.zip webpage as a reference point:

The actual order doesn't matter.
The reason the order was key with E2003 was due to dependencies. It meant that you could pull one down with the /y command and it would pull a few others down with it.
The dependencies have been removed.

For what its worth, I do the store first, then system attendant, then the transport and the email protocols and then everything else. That has worked for me.
I don't have access to my home location at the moment (restricted access) so cannot post the full script. However it something like

net stop "Microsoft Exchange System Attendant" /y

with the services listed one after the other by their full name enclosed in " "

Thanks Sembee.  I will try editing the old 2003 batch file and add in all of the other services in the order you listed.

Regarding this line - with the services listed one after the other by their full name enclosed in " "

I just want to confirm that I can use the descriptions in the Services.msc as the full name?

Not the description, the name, like my example above and these:

net stop "Microsoft Exchange Search Indexer" /y
net stop "Microsoft Exchange Mailbox Assistants" /y

Thanks - That worked great.  I think I may not need all of the services to stop - I think there are some that stop with the main ones like information store.  I'll fine tune it and post the batch file.
