Getting MSExchangeSA Event ID 1005 Login failure error and services will not start.
Posted on 2009-06-29
I have a problem which I think stems from some AD corruption that I have had on SBS 2003.
I have got the server booting up after running ntdsutil offline compression etc. but now Exchange services will not start and I am getting the following error messages:
MSExchangeSA Event: 1005 Category: General
Unexpected error Logon failure: unknown user name or bad password. Facility: Win32 ID no: 8007052e Microsoft Exchange System Attendant occurred.
MSExchangeDSAccess Event: 2114 Category: Topology
Process INETINFO.EXE (PID=5104). Topology Discovery failed, error 0x80040931.
I have already re-run forestprep and domainprep for exchange in case there were missing components in the AD after a cleanup but this has not helped. Also re-applied Exchange SP2.
This is SBS Single server environment so do not have facility to rebuild AD from another server.
I think the problem is mainly to do with the local service account not being recognized by AD and am also getting
USERENV Event: 1053
Windows cannot determine the user or computer name. (Access is denied. ). Group Policy processing aborted.
Any suggestion greatly appreciated.
