After a reboot, a perfectly working OCS 2007 installation has stopped working. I cannot start the Front End service. The event log lists a few errors, none of which I've been able to diagnose (in the order they appear)

Resolution:
Look in previous event logs for more information about this error.




A few notes about the event logs above - one of the events reference an OCS server called OCS2.mydomain.local - this is an old deactivated server I used for testing - I'm not even sure why it's name is even showing up.
Also - the certificate authority is on the same server as the OCS 2007 machine, if that makes any difference.

Please advise. Thank you very much.

Certificate Authority can not be colocated with any server that has OCS roles.

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/896557 might also apply so check that.
Also was the server was removed and re-added to the domain?
If the OCS 2007 server was removed from the domain and re-added, OCS 2007 Server application will not function properly as the SID, GUID property would have changed for
the OCS Server.  If this is the case the solution is to de-activate and re-activate the server roles to resolve.

I deactivated the roles, re-ran the deploy server setup from the installation disc and reactivated the server. On the first reboot, everything came up okay. However, on the second reboot, all the OCS services wouldn't start. I had to manually start each service. Very odd.

What was the very first and second warning or error on the second reboot?  Also look at the informational messages for clues.
