How can Exchange 2010 be restarted without restarting the entire server?
Posted on 2012-08-29
Every now and then, I get mail stuck in the Outlook Outbox, or like this morning, I can "send" mail externally, but cannot "receive" mail externally.
In both instances, I had to restart the entire server to solve both problems.
Note: I did go to the services and saw the services that were running. I went, one by one, stopping all services where the words "Microsoft Exchange" appear. When I got to Microsoft Exchange Transport, I received an error stating that it tried to stop the service, but can't. I tried to "end task", but that did not work.
I also thought about stopping IIS as well and then restarting it.
How can I just stop/restart Exchange 2010 and have it come up with no problems (just as it does from a fresh boot)?
Thanks for your help.
