Exchange Stops Working Twice - Event Logs included

yesterday, I took the server down and then rearranged all the cables and network switches into a more orderly fashion.

when I plugged everything back in and booted up the server, I started getting a lot of errors and no email was sent.  I noticed a root certificate error so I was in mid process of issuing a new certificate in the Exchange Management Console when all of a sudden emails started arriving.  all was good I figure until today around noon.

our exchange server went down and 3 reboots later I still couldn't get it up and running.  so I opened the exchange management console and emails started delivering again.

before rebooting I cleared the Event Application log so the attached log is everything from when the errors began until everything started working again.

the only thing I did before all this started happening was literally turn the server off, move cables, and turn the server back on.

your help in resolving this is appreciated so we don't have to go through the reboots and EMC every day.

I've downloaded the Event Log, but it doesn't make brilliant reading, but, seeing as I can tell you have an SBS server, are you suffering from BackPressure as outlined in my article?

There is a 'quick fix' solution that stops monitoring resources and that should mean that mailflow doesn't stop, but it may mean you need to tidy up some disk space on any drives that have less than 10% free space (or free up some memory).

the error logs are definitely not fun to read.  and the worse thing is that all those log entries were from a span of only about an hour so something is wrong with exchange.

thanks for the article!  I know we definitely had issues when the disk space goes down and i'll read the entire article for helpful hints.

the issue we're having at the moment may be resolved with your article but I don't know why since it was running so well beforehand...
thanks and i'll close the question after reading the article.
