    The only time I've received a 2121 error is when it could not communicate with the domain controller.  My description read "The Microsoft Exchange Active Directory Topology service on server localhost did not return any suitable domain controllers."

    Your event 2121 is however different, and unfortunately a bit more cryptic.  First thing I'd suggest is that you don't think about your Cisco PIX. The error is local to the SBS server itself, and has nothing to do with your Cisco Firewall.

    Unfortunately, the only thing I can ask you to check is to ensure that the Log On As is set to "Local System", and not a user or Network Service.  If it is not set to "Local System" can you use the Log On tab to choose "Local System account"
