Hello again...

I have not rebuild the database file yet.

A couple new related issues came up and I just wanted to make sure that by rebuilding DHCP database file I will not create more issues.

What happens is that exchange keeps on going down every couple of days. I reboot the server and all is fine for some time.
Which service do i need to restart to get exchange going again so that i don't have to reboot the server? (one of the drivers has bad blocks and most the main culprit of these issues. The client will be replacing their server w/ a new one. I just need to keep them limping along for the mean time.)

Any input on these new developments would be greatly appreciated.
