Hi All,

I have Exchange 2003 running on server. First noticed this error when I tried to add a new user and no mailbox was created for it. Deduced that this was because the System Attendant does not stay started. When I start the System Attendant, it stops after a few seconds later.

The error I get in the Event log is as follows:

The description for Event ID ( 1000 ) in Source ( Microsoft Exchange Server ) 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: mad.exe, 6.5.7638.1, 430e737d, ntdll.dll, 5.2.3790.3959, 45d70ad8, 0, 000417af.

Does anyone have any ideas? I have tried looking for any third party fax settings in the recipient policy which has been known to cause this problem but it did not help.

Is there a way to get a more meaningful error for the System Attendant?

Hi All,

Solved problem myself.
Removed all traces of third party connectors and set Directory Access for the server to manual and selecting DCs and GC.
