exchange 2007 File Distribution and Service Host service stopped after update rollup 3 or 4 installation

i installed exchange 2007 update rollup 4 today and after restarting the server, Microsoft Exchange File Distribution and Microsoft Exchange Service Host service is stopped. It is set to Automatic but does not start. I uninstalled the rollup and service got start automatically. then i installed Update rollup 3 and the same problem. it has happened with me on three different servers. 2007 is in the exchange 2003 organization (we are in transition phase). I tested OWA and it was working fine.
I searched on Internet and found http://support.microsoft.com/kb/944752/ artical but it looks very complicated to follow.  and could not found the patches mentioned in the artical.

I would suggest that you should wait for the next update from MS on the update rollup patch 3 and 4 and only then apply them on the server.

Here is the right solution which i got from MS.

Plan A:

1. From Start-Run, launch Proxycfg.exe, see if it returns any proxy settings

2. If not , run the command proxycfg.exe -u

3. Run Proxycfg.exe again to see if the tool had successfully pulled the proxy settings as required

4. Now try to start the Services Host service

 

Plan B:

If Plan A fails, then lets follow the steps below

 

1. Verify that you are running CLR build 2.0.50727.926 or later and install appropriate update

a. Navigate to %windir%\Microsoft.Net\Framework\v2.0.50727

b. Right-Click on mscorwks.dll and select properties

c. On the Version tab, check the file version. If the version is 2.0.50727.926 or later, you do not need to apply the fix. Move on to Step 2.

d. Install fix from http://support.microsoft.com/kb/942027 . This contains the update outlined in http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx/kb/936707 which will be used to work around this issue.

 

2. Verify if the configuration files namely

Microsoft.Exchange.ServiceHost.exe.config exists in the Bin directory , if not create configuration file for this Exchange 2007 service. To create an application configuration file that contains this configuration setting, follow these steps:

 

a. Create a file, and then name the file the

 

<ApplicationName>.exe.config file. (you can find the <application name> by right clicking on the appropriate service)

 

b. In a text editor, open the file that you created in step 1.

 

c. Add the following code to the file.

<configuration>

<runtime>

<generatePublisherEvidence enabled="false"/>

</runtime>

</configuration>

3. Save the changes to the file.

4. Restart the Services

 

Note:

If the config file already exists then you should not overwrite any existing settings in the .config file. It is ok to add the line in red into the runtime section or to create a config file if there is none.

<configuration>

<runtime>

<generatePublisherEvidence enabled="false"/>

</runtime>

</configuration>
