Exchange is unable to mount the databsase that you specified. Specified database: SERVERNAME\StoreFolder\StoreName; Error code:  MapiExceptionSystemAttendantUnavailable:  Unable to mount database. [hr=0x80004005, ec=2430]
I have a production Store already up and running and want to host another post office for our 2nd domain name. I added the store in the management Console but I cant get it to mount. I have done a reboot but no change in the status.

The Microsoft Exchange System Attendant service is it started?
Go to the services console and check
If not start this service and try mounting again

It was the system attendant, now as i understand it all i need to do is set up users for that domain (store) and change the MX to point to the Exchange server. Does that sound correct?
