On a fresh installation of server 2003STD x64 running on ESXi, the installation of the exchange 2007 SP1 finished successfully!
After rebooting the VM, I get a message that one of the services was not loaded.
In the event log I get the events 2102 and 2104.
I can start the MEC, create mailboxes for new or existing users but in the AD users and groups none of the exchange tabs exist.
After not doing anything, the MAD service start successfully after about 6 minutes.
I'd appreciate any help solving this issue.
