Exchange 2003 error

I have a Windows 2003 server running Exchange 2003 and just after I installed the exchange, I get the following error in the event log;

The description for Event ID ( 17053 ) in Source ( MSSQL$MICROSOFT##SSEE ) cannot be found. The local computer may not have the necessary registry information or message DLL files to display messages from a remote computer. You may be able to use the /AUXSOURCE= flag to retrieve this description; see Help and Support for details. The following information is part of the event: FCB::ZeroFile(), GetOverLappedResult(), 2(The system cannot find the file specified.).

All the Exchange services are running but when I try to run outlook and set up an account on a workstation, it tells me that the Exchange server is not available.

Anyone have any ideas of what this is and how to fix it.

    MSSQL$MICROSOFT##SSEE is something to do with WSUS, I guess.  This  has nothing to do with Exchange.

    If you restart the MS Exchange Exchange System Attendant service and look at the event logs, do any of the other dependent services fail or throw errors?

    Also, is the workstation able to get to other network resources or the internet? Sometimes the simplest things like a lost net connection can catch you up.

    I am getting the same thing but Event 17403

    Also, when I open my Server Management Console (using Small Business Server) I can't see any of the icons in the sub menus (like users, internet and e-mail, monitoring and reporting, etc..) and I can't click on any of the links.

    I still have not found the resolution to this.

    If you don't have SP2 installed for 2K3 install it.

    That resolved some of my problems
