I have recently installed win 2003 small business server,which includes exchange 2003, isa server,sharepoint etc.

I have set up a domain and clients,all of whom r running win xp pro.

There r certain services which I have on automatic but invariably,they do not start when the server starts.I get a message that some services did not start ond to condult event logs??

How to make these start automatically??

Sounds like you have a buggy installation.  I'd reinstall.

Yeah... you'll lose all that.  It can be backed up and restored, but I'm wondering if that's part of the problem.  The common opinion within the SBS Community is that it takes three times to properly install your first SBS.  There's a great overview of this here:  http://msmvps.com/blogs/kwsupport/archive/2006/08/17/107981.aspx

If you don't do things correctly from the start, they will usually haunt you for the remainder of the server's life cycle.  So that's why I recommend reinstalling.
