Exchange Server 2010 Service Buttons Greyed Out - Exchange Down

Last Modified: 2012-03-17
Last night I installed the latest Windows updates for Windows Server 2008 and Exchange 2010.  Now when I rebooted the server Exchange will not come up and all of the service buttons in "services" are greyed out.  All of them say disabled and none of them will allow me to start them (greyed out).

I'm uninstalling the updates I installed last night one by one.  Anything else I should do?

Exchange ActiveSync has encountered repeated failures when it tries to access data on Mailbox server [ODC-MAIL1.odc.local]. It will temporarily stop making requests to the Mailbox server for [60] seconds to reduce load on that server. This delay may occur if the Mailbox server is overloaded. If this event is logged frequently, review the Application log on this server and the Mailbox server noted above for other events that could indicate the root cause of performance problems.
Additional information:
"serverFQDN=ODC-MAIL1.odc.local

we have exchange 2010 running on server 2008.  I have two domain controllers on 2008 as well.  One of them is my AD.  All of these servers are on VMware.

All I did this morning was reboot after installing all of those updates.  I also changed the OUTSIDE DNS on my Domain controllers to a different numbers since our ISP changed.

My Exchange server is now installing the updates.  I have a feeling that it tried installing the updates and they failed which is why I couldnt uninstall them and my Exchange stopped working.  We'll see if this works after they install and I restart.

So for some reason KB2608646 caused all of my Exchange services to change to "DISABLED".  I had to manually change all of these back to "AUTOMATIC" and reboot the server. Then I had to set a few other services to "automatic" such as World Wide Web Publishing Services" to get the Exchange console working.  

Everything is fixed now.

I did a few google searches on the latest updates that Server 2008 was trying to install and figured out that a problem with one of the updates caused all of my Exchange services to become disabled.
