After install of Exchange server 2003 sp2 Information Store will not start

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.

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.

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.

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

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.

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 ?
