I have 2 Server 2008 boxes with Exchange 2007 running on the first domain controller - domain function is at 2008.
Exchange installed fine and everything appears to be installed properly, but the blasted transport service stops after a few seconds. I've tried using both teh local system account and the network service account to run it but it always stops after a few seconds. One thing to note is after the local system account didn't work, i keyed in "network service" and used the admin password. I'm guessing that's correct as the servie would start again - however it stops like always. I'm at a loss here. everything with the DCs seem to work great except this vital service. I'll continue to go through logs. thanks!!
