HI, I need help to restart my information store. Each time I restart this exchange server, the IS still in stop mode. If It try to manually start the service, I got this error:
Log Name:      Application
Source:        MSExchangeIS
Date:          2009-05-02 21:39:11
Event ID:      5003
Unable to initialize the Microsoft Exchange Information Store service because the clocks on the client and on the server machine are skewed. This may be caused by a time change either in the client or the server machine, and may require a reboot of that machine. Other than that, verify that your domain is properly configured and is currently online.

I read several post, here and on the web, I try many thing without success. In the past with this error, I need to wait some minute or do a w32tm /resynch to solve this problem. But This time nothing seam to work. Exchange 2007 run on windows 2008 on a 2003 domain, Our 2 DC are up and runing good. The time zome are the same on exchange and DC.

I need some help!
Thanks a lot

 Although this article talks about exchange being installed on a GC....I would still recommend following it
There is another article that talks about roll ups causing this issue;
