We have received this alert where System Attendant Service is stopped on the server

I found 40 mailboxes hosted on the server’s database EX10PFX0 and 40 on EX10PFX02( public folder database).
PFX01-PublicFolders01 EX10PFX01
PFX02-PublicFolders02 EX10PFX02

This is roughly 10 GB of mailboxes data hosted on these servers.

Can you please let us know :

•      Do we need to move these mailboxes to other databases (except public folder).
•      SA service is running on EX10PFX02 shall we need to start the same on EX10PFX01 as well.

and an error shows that system attendant is not running.

can you suggest

having mailboxes on public folder database can be because of Users will by default use the Public Folder Database that is specified on the Mailbox Database.
no its not the case. what ever public folder u have put on database will be used by users

my question was why user mailboxes are on public folder database and not on mailbox database
Was the server rebooted? Pls check the event logs on the servers
