I have a Server running Exchange 2000. It crashed and we did a restore and now the System Attendant along with the other services listed below will not start:
Exchange Event - Manual
Microsoft Exchange IMAP4 - NOT Started
Microsoft Exchange Information Store - NOT started
Microsoft Exchange Management - Started
Microsoft Exchange MTA-Stacks - NOT started
Microsoft Exchange POP3 - NOT Started
Microsoft Exchange Routing Engine - NOT Started
Microsoft Exchange Replication Service - Disabled
Microsoft Exchange System Attendant - NOT started

Looking in the event log  I find the fiollowing errors:

Event Type: Error
Event Source: MSExchangeSA
Event Category: General
Event ID: 1005
Computer: EX1
Unexpected error The object is no longer available. Press F5 to refresh display, and then try again. ID no: c1030727 Microsoft Exchange System Attendant  occured.

Event Type: Error
Event Source: MSExchangeSA
Event Category: General
Event ID: 9149
Computer: EX1
Microsoft Exchange System Attendant failed to start Exchange Server 'EX1'. Error code '0xc1030727'.

I also noted that the Exchange Server no longer shows up in Exchange System Manager (This is due to services not running I assume). I ran ESEUTIL on the databases and they were fine. Also ran Domain Prep on the Domain Controller and EX1 to restore objects but no luck. I cannot find the error code listed above anywhere. Any advice or help would greatly be appreciated, Thanks.
