Rebooted SBS 2003 server after 50 days up time.  

Suddenly signing in using local admin acct takes extermely long [currently at over an hour].  Able to remotely access machine via logmein, but Term Services is down and so is Exchange.   Machines on network can access file shares w/o issue.  Server generates nightly performance log and points to MS Exchange issues, but not sure why this is occurred.

I am now able to see the desktop but any ideas on this one?

Hi,

I recommend that you run ExTra:

also run perfmon to see I/O for the HDD and RPC calls.
What is your hardware configuration?

SBS 2003 SP2 Dell 2.0 GB

Suddenly seeing this error in the event logs also:

dynamic registration or deletion of one or more dns

And others similar to it.  I'm able to get into via safe mode but there is alot I can't run.  

MS Exch Attendant is suddenly in "starting" mode.

That sounds like your DNS is not configured correctly.
Ensure that it is pointing to the server itself ONLY for DNS, no external DNS servers should be listed in the network configuration of the server.
