delay exchange 2010 startup

Hi, I am look for guidance on how to delay the startup of my exchange server services, this is a Non-profit and the exchange 2010 server is operating on the sole 2008r2 domain controller.

I would like either help or pointers to comprehensive info (for the non-expert) on how to delay the mail services from launching until all of the fsmo services, etc and external raid , have come up.

Will automatic(delayed start) delayed start be enough for this? Is there a utility or script i and used to accomplish this, ideally, i would like the exchange server to wait to start for 5min after the server is running. also a simple method for manually starting the exchange services would be okay too......

thanks

You can set all the exchange services to manual

Then create a script that will start the services for you launch it when you are ready
or place it in the startup folder so when you logon it will run.

It the script you can set a delay for 5 mins

need help with the script let me know
