Default Website Doesn't start after Exchange 2003 Reboot

When I reboot the Exchange 2003 server, the default website does not start, nor will it start.  I have to wait for the Exchange server to come all the way up and then stop the IIS Admin Services, start the default website and then go back and start the Exchange services (HTTP SSL, POP3, IMAP4, Information store, etc.  This never seemed to do that until I installed a certificate and activated SSL for use with iPhones.

Congrats! The iPhone takes down another server ;)

Make the services dependent on each other in the order that you have to start  them.

How do you change the order of the dependencies of services?  Would I put IIS first or last?
Jon BrelieSystem ArchitectCommented:
Take the order that you start the services that works.  For example:
service1, service2 service3, service4

Edit service4 so that it is dependent on service3.
Edit service3 so that it is dependent on service2.
Edit service2 so that it is dependent on service1.

in this example, service4 won't start until 3 is done.  3 won't start until 2 is done, etc...
