To try and resolve the recent appearance of Exchange Server 2003 Event ID: 9188 errors I want to stop and restart Exchange services without rebooting the server.  What is the best way to do this?  Do I stop ALL the Exchange services on the server or just the System Attendant service?  [Or is this a bad idea and I should wait until after hours and reboot the whole server?]

Nothing has changed in our environment but curiously the Exchange server is now reporting every 15 minutes that it cannot read the membership of the Active Directory Users group "Exchange Domain Servers"  (Error code: '80072020'), and YES, that group is in the users container and the server running Exchange is a member.
