Exchange 2007 Information Store and System Attendant not starting on reboot, or manually.

We just migrated from Exchange 2003 to 2007, and have finished moving all of the mailboxes to the new box and routed mail to it.  It seemed to be working fine, but after a reboot the Info Store and System Attendant servies don't start, and can't be started manually.  The only thing I've got to work is reboot the server a few times and they'll restart, until now where they won't seem to start.  I've noticed the following System Event Log.

Event ID 7024
Source Service Control Manager EventLog Provider

The Microsoft Exchange Information Store terminated with the server specific error 0 (0x0).

Any help provided would be greatly appreciated.

Is Your AD Toolbox Looking More Like a Toybox?

Managing Active Directory can get complicated.  Often, the native tools for managing AD are just not up to the task.  The largest Active Directory installations in the world have relied on one tool to manage their day-to-day administration tasks: Hyena. Start your trial today.

Sorry for leaving this part out, but I didn't realize it until now.  An associate of mine was installing BES Express and couldn't get it to work, once I uninstalled it and all SQL installed on the server, rebooted the server all the services started back up.  Not sure why the BESX was affecting it though.

hm.. that might be temporary .. what it apeared to be
i think the issue will reapear .. hope does not

but if does
Look for the following key in the registry: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\MSExchangeIS\VirusScan and set "Enabled" to a value of 0. Stop and restart the exchange services.

and make sure that you add exclusions in the antivirus software

Ok, I'll check, but I don't think there is any antivirus software on it.

On that last post, does it matter that my server isn't a Global Catalog Server?
