I am running a Single forest with multiple domains.I have recently built a new domain and added an exchange server into the domain. I was running seven exchange servers with no problems. when I installed service pack 2 on the new exchange server the store will not mount.
Any help would be appreciated.

I am getting event viewer errors: 5000 and 1121. I have looked at all permissions and have researched this for a couple of days now to no avail. I have also reloaded exchange numerous times on this machine. I have been Hardening the forest security so it could be an issue with my Parent domain. I am kind of baffled at this point.

Does Powershell have you tied up in knots?

On the System Manager -> Right Click on the Server Name -> Properties -> Security Tab.

Check and see if the Server Name is Listed there with Full Control.

If not then add the Server there and give it Full Control.

I can't. I have 7 other function exchange servers in my Organization. This is a brand new install.

Try going to the property of the Mailbox Store.

Chick on the Database Tab.
Check the Option -> This Database can be overwritten by a restore.
See if you are able to Mount the Database.

If it Still Fails then Go to the Properties of the Database. -> Security Tab.
Click on Advanced and make sure that the option -> Allow Inheritance -> is checked.

from your exchange server where you are getting this error  - if your ping your local domain name what do you get ?

Also please run this from your DC

dcdiag /v /e /TEST:DNS > C:\dcdiag.txt
and upload the file here.

Information store started. After checking with my employee to see what errors he had originally. He also had a mapi32.dll error. I renamed the mapi32.dll file to old and did a reinstall and the stores mounted and started. Not sure if the mapi32.dll error was causing all of this or not. We are building a test domain to verify.

Can you copy some of the errors from Application log
Also if there are any warnings pointing to mapi32

Do you have Blackberry Enterprise/Express Server running from your local domain ?
