im having an issue with an 03 standard server

i was migrating a DC and making this the PDC and exchange server - that went well

installed DNS - went well

installed RRAS - went well

restarted not so good

 now only a few services start , when i try to look at the dependencies on a service it said " win32: access is deined

i get no network connections but if i do an IPconfig i can see that it has ip addresses

i am really stuck  any ideas?

Do you have multiple NIC on the server, If yes, Disable all others and change the binding order of the network card..It should be current one on top.
Network Connections>>Advanced>>Advanced settings>>Bring up the current network adaptor on top. Reboot required for talking effect.

Also start>>run>>services.msc>>make sure that the network connection service, server service has started, Also disable the windows firewall and check the issue and let me know your findings.

Have you checked whether its configured with static IP, Have you checked the network cable? Have you tried to insall the network driver once again.

Whats the output when you ran netdiag /fix?

What you are getting while typing ipconfig /all
Are you able to ping any other machines on the network?

GO to run>services.msc and check network connetion services are running or stoped.

Since there are no adapters listed, you should reinstall the NIC drivers, or check the device manager.

Also in general, it is NOT recommended that an exchange server be a DC.

I hope this helps !

Please give us an IDEA of what adapters you planned on having, and why RRAS was enabled?
Commented:
If you ask me, it appears your TCP/IP stack is confused, hence confusing the routing table and as a result many networking functions of the server have stopped. I might suggest unistalling RRAS until you can get in control of your TCP/IP stack and routing table, which is somwhat transparant and dynamic to the administrator.
