Thanks all for your suggestions.

The problem was a result of the time between the mailbox server and the domain controller. They were out of sync by 24hours and after correcting the time, all the services started.

Try to get the header dump of your databases using eseutil.exe. See if they are in clean shutdown.

Let me know if you need help getting header dumps.

You will have errors BEFORE (based on timestamp) this one that are more indicative of what is going on.

Has Powershell sent you back into the Stone Age?

If managing Active Directory using Windows Powershell® is making you feel like you stepped back in time, you are not alone.  For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why.
