Problem at Windows SBS 2003 boot


I've enable verbose startup message to see what's going on with my SBS 2003. Safe Mode works well, but when booting in normal mode, it get stuck on (in french)"Strategie d'audit de domaine Small Business Server" or Translated it should looks like this : Applying domain audit strategy to Small Business Server.

Anyone can help with this?

Hello yanickgosselin,

what did you change recently on the SBS?
if you are in safe mode, check the evenlogs for related error messages.
and if possible, undo auditing if you've set on auditing GPO or smth like that.

I found the problem after calling Microsoft. My Exchange database was corrupted. I was able to restart the server in safe mode, disable to Exchange Store Service, repaired with ESEutil /p DATABASE_NAME and all went back.

Tnx alot to everyone!
