Last week we had an issue with our SAN. We are adding more disk arrays to our SAN, and when we connected the disks, the SAN went off line.
When we managed to bring the SAN back on line, I checked our Exchange servers to make sure they had come back online. All of the servers came back online apart from the CAS Server.
When I was trying to start the Exchange Management Console on the CAS server, I got an error (I have added a screenshot of this error), so then I tried to start the Exchange Powershell, when the Powershell started, there was a blank scrren (Screenshot attached).
I also checked the Services on the server, and all the Exchange services started apart from the Microsoft Exchange Transport service, when I tried to start this service, I was getting anoother error (screenshot attached). When I checked on another CAS server for these issues, they were up and running without any issues.
I have tried looking on many forums, and also contacted Microsoft support who won't support us as we are running Exchange 2007 on Windows 2003 Server that is hosted on a VM.
Does anyone have any ideas of how I can get around this issue??
I am hoping to avoid rebuilding this server and want to use this option as the very last resort.
