MSExchangeSA\Parameters\ServerName and LogDirectory and LogPermissions are there?

Check the msExchDataPath attribute of the server object see if it's pointing to the correct location.

Open ADSIEdit.
Expand Configuration, Services, Microsoft Exchange, <Your ORG>, Administrative
Groups, <Your Administrative Group>, Servers, <Your Server>
Right-click <Your Server> and pull up properties.
Select the attritue msExchDataPath. Change the location so that it points to the correct location for \exchsrvr (i.e. C:\Program Files\exchsrvr)
