Exchange 2007 - Information Store Service Not Starting (Multihomed NICs)

Hello Experts,

I have a Exchange 2007 server that has 4 NICs enabled for different subnets. Upon rebooting the server, I had an error message stating that the Information Store service will not start.

Here is the actual message:
Windows could not start the Micosoft Exchange Information Store on Lovcal Computer. For more information, review the System Event Log. If this is a non-Microsoft service, contact the service vendor, and refer to service-specific error code 0.

So I researched the error code and nothing helped. I actually fixed this by disabling NICs 2, 3, & 4.

My question is, does Exchange 2007 Information Store service have some kind of binding to a single NIC? I'm trying to figure out why the IS will start with one NIC but not when all 4 is enabled.
