Hi,

I've recently set up an Exchange 2013 Vmware machine on a Dell PowerEdge server.
Exchange appears to be working OK but the Exchange services are intermittently having issues starting upon a reboot of the server. Network services also have trouble starting up.

Server details:
Hardware: Dell PowerEdge T320 with 32GB ram
Vmware: ESXi 5.5.0 2068190
Exchange server OS: Windows Server 2012 64 bit (12GB ram allocated)
Exchange: Exchange server 2013

Any assistance would be appreciated.
I can provide any additional info upon request.

First check all the application log and check what was the reason it was not starting?
Did you assigned any specific AD account for the exchange services which might be locked on AD?
What was the last changes made before the reboot?

Hi,

I believe we resolved the issue by reinstalling with the Dell version of ESXi rather than the generic version.

Thanks.
