Hi

Today, we had to restart the System Attendant service on Exchange 2007 Mailbox servers to fix an issue. Which brings the question, apart from the Information Store, are there any MS Exchange services on a 2007 box (mailbox, Hub, CAS) that would bring about an outage to users if I restarted the service? Sys Attendant didn't seem to cause a problem.

The only thing that will cause a client to actually notice is the information store.

The others will not cause any errors at client side.  Not so they would notice anyway.

Transport will stop mail going in and out, it will simply be queued and the client won't notice.

This is what the System Attendent service does: http://msexchangeteam.com/archive/2005/06/09/406137.aspx

And to be honest, it's so quick nobody would notice anyway!
