System Attendant service not starting.
Posted on 2008-02-12
Hi, We are running an exchange server 2003. All was ok only i had few problems with the backup onto a networked drive. I restarted all the servers, 2 DC and Exchange server that is windows server 2003. After the reboot I am having problems with exchange services. Specfically Exchange System Attendant service not starting. When i start it after some time it says service started but stoped again, few services will stop if they have nothing to do. NOW, becuase system attendant isnt working, information store is not working either. I also had 1 o2 errors in event log related to RPC, that RPC did not start, even though when I check in services RPC is started. I restarted system several times but of no use. Information store service does not start and error appears dependencies not started or something.
One thing i want to say, before restarting the system, i was erassing few users from Windows and Programmes security list ON THE DOMAIN CONTROLLER. There were few users which did not have proper names, they appeared like ACCOUNTS-02-GGV-92, this format. i removed those users from the access permission in securty of windows and programe folder on DC. did this cause any problem, if you suspect, plz let me know which account must have access on these folders on DC, so I can give permissions to them.
