Exchange 2003 MSADC errors 8064 8108

Server 2003; Exchange 2003.
Server is AD/DC, Global Catalog, and runs Exchange 2003. 4 other DCs in organisation.

Error 8064
Could not read entry 'CN=Exchange Settings,CN=SERVERNAME,CN=Servers,CN=Default-First-Site-Name,CN=Sites,CN=Configuration,DC=DOMAINNAME,DC=local' on directory servername.domainname.local. Cannot access Connection Agreementinformation. Make sure that service was installed properly.

Error 8108
The initialization process failed.

First error (8064) on starting service; Second error (8108) re-occurs every 5 minutes.

I don't believe this is new, it doesn't appear to hamper the functionality, but I'd like to get rid of it. I beleive this server was subject to a botched attempt to upgrade from Exchange 5.5.

Thanks for any assistance.
