The server works fine but when it reboots the mailbox stores are not mounted, I am currently having to to right click them and "mount" them manually.
Is there a service or something that needs to be set to automatic?

Hi,
Please make sure that these services are set to Start Automatically
  • Exchange Information Store Service
  • System Attendant Service
Also, can you confirm if there are any errors in event viewer on the server.
Where is your DC?
Thanks

But my doubts are going to DC/GC.....lets see

Any delay in answering post is because the site concerned is remote to me and I do not want to implement possible solutions without being on site. Sometimes is not possible to react within a few days, we dont all work for just one company

You may need to rebuild the store:
http://blog.mpecsinc.ca/2008/07/sbs-exchange-information-store-is.html

Run the two commands in the blog post first to see if you can clean up the store. A no mount generally means the database is corrupted.

If you cannot successfully run the two commands, then run through the process indicated to recreate a fresh store and along with the export/import process for the user's mailboxes.

Hi,

Also I know this is very basic, but ensure the option "Do not mount this store at start-up" is not selected on the properties of the Mailbox Store :)

I cant quite believe that that was the answer all along!! I didnt know that the tick box existed. It just goes to show that after following more difficult solutions from people on and off this site it just needed one tick box.
A very BIG thank you for an answer that has been bugging me for a while
