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.

Have you tried running ESM from another machine?

ESM from all servers to that server dont work. From that server to itself does work.

I found an error in event vwr on the server. About to see if I can find anything on it... if you know please let me know.

Ah ok.. I was going to ask if any BKup jobs were running. :)

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!
