We run MS Exchange 2013 v 15.0.775.38

All was fine until earlier today when we get Event 1003 logging every 5 seconds or so.

There have been no software or hardware changes.

Single Exch server in site.

Transport Service will not start

Multiple reboots.  AV removed (but same AV and config on other 2013 boxes with no issue).

Cannot find any info on this error.

please help!  Screen shot attached

The exception code here is indeed a mouthful  "dynamic search folders per scope count receive quota exceeded"

This, by the way, suggests a user search folder / search indexing problem with a particular mailbox  and possible   excessive resource usage  that may be unrelated to the reason Transport service is failing to start.


I would suggest first...    make sure all your disk drives are accessible,  and there are 4GB minimum free on each.

Check dependencies of transport service:  Make sure Microsoft Exchange Active Directory topology service is started.


Then check the event viewer for errors on the Transport Service  in the application log.

You may try to delete the catalog index folder from EDB

How to do:

1. Log onto the Exchange 2013 server (active node first) and stop the Microsoft Exchange Search Indexer service.
2. Delete the catalog index folder for this database.
3. Start the Microsoft Exchange Search Indexer service.
4. Repeat steps 1-3 for the passive node.
5. If necessary, mount the database.

“ReinstallDefaultTransportAgents.ps1” file from the exchange management shell. The problem occurs because a valid “agents.config” file can not be found in the location “C:\Program Files\Microsoft\Exchange Server\TransportRoles\Shared\agents.config”. The default configuration for transport agents can be recovered by running “scripts\ReinstallDefaultTransportAgents.ps1¿.

Another possible solution is that the permission on the TransportRoles folder may be set incorrectly for the Network Service. The Network Service needs full permission on the TransportRoles folder and children.

Lookslike transport service corrupted.Please check the error events from source MSTransport service.
Please look for rename and restart the service.

It transpires this error was due to a calendaring sync issue from a third party App.  We had Gold Support logged at MS and the ISV had the same.  MS had never seen it before,  ISV fixed by changing their code.

Hi, I know this is an old thread but I am having the same issue and also have some third party installed on the Exchange server. Can you share which third party app that caused your issue?

Thanks
