please make sure your DC/GC reachable.
Please make sure DNS server IP are set correctly in exchange server NIC.
If all correct restart server again.

Could be on of the following..
1. Make sure their is no time differance on your exchange server and your domain controllers (GC)
2. Exit your antivirus, we have had issues in the past with exchange and trend micro because exchange connects to a web interface and trend was set to block this only effected EMC and exchange PS

None of the above worked.  When I start the Windows PowerShell Modules I get the following error:
Errors occurred while importing the modules.  To view the errors. type "$error"
then:
Add-PSSnapin : Cannot load Windows PowerShell snap-in Microsoft.WindowsServerSolutions.SBS.Powershell.MoveData because of the following error: Could not load life or assembly ' file://C:\Program Files\Windows Small Business Server\Bin\MoveDatacmdlet.dll or one of its dependencies.  This assembly is built by a runtime newer than the currently loaded runtime and cannot be loaded.

SBS config appears to be corrupted/broken. I believe if you delete:
 C:\Users\<user>\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Exchange\RemotePowerShell\ and restart PS, the errors should go away, if not, this is an TN article which pertains to your original question and the error described above:

http://blogs.technet.com/b/sbs/archive/2012/12/15/windows-management-framework-3-0-applicability-on-windows-small-business-server-2008-2011-standard.aspx

There are some KB fixes for this included in the article.

Problem solved after trying everything above.  I discovered on a Blog (quite by accident) that IPV6 has to be enabled at the Exchange Server.  As soon as I enabled it Exchange works.

Thanks for your help....

FYI IPv6 is not the cause of this issue. Please try to find the cause otherwise it may reproduce

MAS you may be right all I know is that IPV6 was disabled and when I enabled it Exchange started to work.  I am happy, if it breaks again I will call on you for an answer.
