I have upgraded a clients SBS 2003 SP1 server to Exchange SP 2 since doing so when the server is rebooted I get the following events sent to me, however the MSExchangeIS and TermService start up and function correctly. I receive these in addition to the System Up Time email, this is only since the SP was applied to Exchange.

Any ideas ??

Alert on SERVER at 4/2/2009 1:43:19 PM

MSExchangeIS service is Start Pending.

This service manages the Exchange mailbox and public folder stores. If this service is stopped, mailbox stores and public folder stores on the Small Business Server computer are unavailable.

For more information about this event, see the event logs on the server computer. You can restart this service by using the View Services task in the Server Management Monitoring and Reporting taskpad.

You can disable this alert by using the Change Alert Notifications task.

TermService service is Stopped.

This service allows multiple users to be connected interactively to the Small Business Server computer and provides the display of desktops and applications to remote computers.

For more information about this event, see the event logs on the server computer. You can restart this service by using the View Services task in the Server Management Monitoring and Reporting taskpad.

You can disable this alert by using the Change Alert Notifications task.

I think what your seeing is event notification prior to the event starting completely.  Try disabling the alert by using the Change Alert Notifications task.  I wouldn't concern myself too much with this especially if it only happens on reboot.  And if it only happens on reboot, then you really shouldn't have to change the alert notification at all because for a server you will not need to reboot too often.

You wrote "I think what your seeing is event notification prior to the event starting completely."

Is exactly what I was thinking, is there a way to delay the SBS checking the events, to be honest I am not to concerened but tends to freek you out a little bit as I am sure you can understand being MSExchangeIS !

Stange that it has only started since SP2 ?? Must be slightly slower in starting than SP1..

My greatest frustration with SBS 2003 is that it is almost impossible to maintain a pristine eventlog.  I hav etried to troubleshoot so that I've minimized red and yellow events, with little or no luck.  It is definitely much cleaner than when I started, however I still get remenants of errors that are non-critical, etc.  The process to a means with an end was to investigate each error with Microsoft Partner Site portal and determine that some events are just "because"....  I hope 2008 is better at this than 2k3.
cheers!
