Server 2000 with Exchange 2000. I have backed up my mail store
I get two errors
1 -"Windows could not start the Microsoft Exchange Information Store on Local
Computer.  For mor information, reveiw the System Event Log.  If this is a
non-Microsoft service, contact the service vendor and refer to
service-specific error code 0."
2- when I try to reinstall Exchange I get "The component "Microsoft Exchange Messaging and Collaboroation Services" cannot be assigned th action "Reinstall
 because:
- Setup is unable to access the Windows 2000 Active Directiory
- Failed to contact the Schema Master server for the Active Directory forest"

I ran the util on Priv1.edb and pub1.edb, they went from a state of Dirty Shutdown to Clean Shutdown
