Exchange start-up errors - keeps prompting clients for password

Hi everyone, I am getting a number of start-up errors in Exchange 2003 SP2 which appears to be unable to communicate with AD and outlook clients are repeatedly prompted for login info which is never accepted.

This is Exchange 2003 SP2 running on a Win2K3 SP2 DC with ISA 2004 and IIS 6 all on the same box (I know it's not recommended).

I have run DCDIAG and NETDIAG and there are no errors except for an AD replication latency to another DC.

These are the start-up errors I'm getting:

off the top of my head I would be thinking that the exchange services are coming up and online before your AD services on that box and are trying to access the AD before the machine is ready to act as a DC

try pointing your exchange server at a different dc/gc and not at itself

Very strange, this morning it worked just fine.
I can't explain it.
