Exchange 2010 Address Book Service Doesn't Start Automatically

Hi,

Whenever I reboot my Exchange 2010 server, the Address Book Service does not start automatically (even though it is set to). The event viewer shows the following error twice:

Event ID 7000
The Microsoft Exchange Address Book service failed to start due to the following error:
The service did not respond to the start or control request in a timely fashion.

This prevents some of my users from being able to connect to the Exchange server for some reason. When I start the service, however, they are fine.

Any ideas?

Thanks,
Dumont

Perhaps there's something delaying the Active Directory Topology service from starting. You might want to set it as Automatic Delayed and check. I had that for a while too.

Thanks, I will try that.

Are you saying you no longer have this problem at all? If so, did something else fix it?

Dumont
Yeah, I don't have it anymore but I really can't remember if there was one thing that I did that fixed it. Sorry.

Rebooted and it worked! Took a good bit for the service to eventually start but it did. Thanks
