Can't view First Storage Group on Server

When I expand the First Storage Group and then try to expand the Mailbox Store for one of my servers, it gives an error. It basically says it can't connect b/c the exchange information store service is unavailable. (Locally the ESMt connects fine, but i get the error when i try to connect from any other server to this problem server).

When I try to restart the MS Exch INformation STore service, it fails and says the service did not respond to the start or control request in a timely fashion.

HOWEVER, email seems to work just fine everywhere between the exchange servers and outside world.

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.

I hadn't thought of it, but I guess it makes sense. It probably locks all sorts of processes on the server being backed up... hence the problem! Thanks again!
