SBS 2003 - Exchange Services Will Not Start
Posted on 2007-08-10
I restarted this SBS 2003 Server this morning. It took forever to get to the login screen. To make a long story short the Exchange services do not start. They time out and at the point the whole server is "asleep". No error messages. Nothing in the event log. Nothing. I booted in to Safe Mode and set all the Exchange services to manual. It now boots fine and is very responsive but ...
When evey I try and start ANY of the exchange services it times out starting the service and puts the server to sleep. Everything is at a crawl. Once again, no errors, nothing in the event log, nothing. They just won't start.
