Exchange 2010 Address Book Service Doesn't Start Automatically
Posted on 2012-04-13
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.
