Exchange System Manager can't connect to one server ID no: C1041721

The error in the system mgr is

"the action could not be compelted because the ms exch info store service is unavailable. be sure the service is running and you have network connectivity to the ms exch server computer.
operion: retrieving mount information
ID no: c1041721
exchange system manager"

The symptoms are that everything works normally except in the system manager... and blackberry devices aren't working at that one particular remote server.

Blackberry support keeps claiming it's high latency and a reboot of the BES server will fix everything at least for a while. Tried two or three reboots and no luck.

The event warning msgs on the BES server are things like

"User Joe Blow not started" event ID 20154

"{joeblow} MAPIMailbox::~MAPIMailbox - DeleteAllDeviceSearches (0x00000000) failed" event id: 20265

"{t} MAPIMailbox::MAPIMailbox(2) - OpenMsgStore (0x8004011d) failed, MailboxDN=/o=CAJUN/ou=First Administrative Group/cn=Recipients/cn=JoeBlow, ServerDN=/o=DOMAINNAME/ou=First Administrative Group/cn=Configuration/cn=Servers/cn=ServerName/cn=Microsoft Private MDB"

I'm thinking they are both the same issue.

When you say you are getting this error in System manager, when excatly you get this error. Are you trying to mount the store ?

Do you get the error when you open the ESM from the problem exchange server. Can you confirm if the store are mounted on the Problem server. Is the SA service running.

Yeah, opens up fine from ESM on the problem server itself. Exchange seems normal as far as getting and sending emails from that server. Except not to blackberries. Plenty of disk space. Everything appears mounted and running normally.

OK, i may try but not just yet. Those guys are still active users.. i dont want to delete them, and I haven't moved them from one server to another in months (the blackberry guy is telling me that's the most common time to run that cleanup agent).

As it turns out, it was Backup Exec hanging up on a backup job. It runs on another server but backs up that email server. Thanks for the help though.
