I have Problem with Exchange 2003 i got
errors on Event Log

Event ID 5516
The computer or domain EXCHSRV trusts domain ATHENS. (This may be an indirect trust.) However , EXCHSRV and ATHENS have the same machine security identifier (SID).

Source DfsSrv
Event ID 14530

Event ID 5719
This computer was not able to set up a secure session with domain controller in domain ATHENS.

Event ID 3210
This computer count not authenticate with \\, a windows domain controller dor domain athens, and therefore this computer might deny logon requests

So the Information store can not start because i can not log on on the server with the administrator account. This is the only Exchange server in the company. i only can log localy.

Can you Help me Please ?

please can you advise if these servers are virtual servers? or have they been cloned or implemented wit hthe SAME image?

you may have to do this:

reset the ATHENS computer acount on ad
download and run newsid.exe on athens server and say to create random sid.
the Athens server will reboot.
rejoin athens to the domain

If the Exchange server is a domain controller, do the following:

demote Exchange as domain controller, change the sid, join the domain, promote as domain controller

This should solve your first issue.

Let me know!

ATHENS is the Domain NAME not a DC.
My Domain Controlers got the NAMES PLATON , ATHINA
EXCHSRV is the exchange 2003 Server NAME.
