Exchange 2010 MS Exchange System Attendant won't start on server reboot

We have a server FNBExchange running Win Server 2012 and Exchange 2010.  It has been running fine for several months.  Today I rebooted the server and now my Outlook clients won't connect.  On the server dashboard it shows for Local Server that two services did not start.  Microsoft Exchange System Attendant shows the status of Stopped, with Start Type of Automatic.   Microsoft Exchange Information Store shows Start Pending (also automatic).

I've attempted to manually start these with no positive results.  Attempts to open Outlook at a user workstation end with "disconnected".

While rebooting servers I did reboot the domain controller first, followed later by the Exchange server.  I've checked the time to make sure they are in sync (they are).  I've reviewed pages of google items and dead-ended every time.  Any help would be appreciated.

After hours of reading various KBs I stumbled onto one that resolved the problem for me. For whatever reason after the reboot I had to stop and restart the MS Exchange Active Directory Topology service.  Once I did that everything is working.  I have no clue why this would be necessary but it fixed my problem.  Thank you suriyaehnop and Jeff for your willingness to help.

One thing you can do is delay auto start certain exchange services.
this usually happen when some services can't connect to global catalog and hence give you that issues.
