Exchange 2010 MS Exchange System Attendant won't start on server reboot
Posted on 2014-01-26
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.
