I am trying to set up exchange 2010 on a server running windows 2008 R2. I just have a single domain with a Windows 2008R2 Enterprise DC, a Windows 2003 File and print server and a Windows 2008 R2 server running Exchange 2010 SP1. I followed installation instructions as well as post instructions during the setup. It is not in use yet but I am getting these errors in my event viewer:

I was hoping to get some direction. Exhange 2010 is a totally different animal than 2003. All the roles are running on one server. EE helped me with the installation a while back and the installation went ok but we were not ready to use it back then. Any help would be greatly appreciated. No AV is running on it yet. I see Exchange groups in AD.

All the services are started but the 2 you mentioned are in auto delay mode. I will set them to auto and reboot.
