Hi,
What is the best way to shutdown Exchange 2003 to avoid dirty shutdown?  
Should I dismount Exchange database first, or stop information store service, stop system attendant, IMAP4, Routing Engine services first, and shutdown server last
Or should I just go ahead shutdown the server?

Hi,

I always stop the Microsoft Exchange System Attendant first this will also stop the Information Store and then restart the server. There's a school of thought that you don't need to do this but I think you get a quicker and cleaner shutdown that way. Just my 2 cents.

Try putting the following in a batch file and execute before server shutdown.

net stop MSExchangeES
net stop IMAP4Svc
net stop POP3Svc
net stop RESvc
net stop MSExchangeSRS
net stop MSExchangeMGMT
net stop MSExchangeMTA
net stop MSExchangeIS   /Y
net stop MSExchangeSA   /Y
