Michael,
Thanks. Are you suggesting that when I install SP2 on this server, I
should  answer NO to that question if I see it?

While this doesn't seem to meet your problem description, I have seen
this - specifically when installing sp2 and choosing YES to "overwrite
newer files with older files" or whatever the specific message is.

Maybe one of you has seen this. 

Our "disaster recovery" mail server was upgraded from Exchange 2003 SP1
to
SP2 in mid-January. It contains about 10 to 15 mailboxes and I wanted to
"test" SP2 on that server before deploying it here.

Our main mail server is still running Exchange 2003 SP1 (on Win2000).
Since I put SP2 on the Disaster Recovery mail server, I have seen the
following error Four times:
    Error in C++ runtime library..... (in a pop-up window) 

This occurs on our main mail server. After I see that error, then every
30
seconds I see in the Event Viewer:
  ID=7011; Source = Service Control Manager 
  Timeout (300000 miliseconds) waiting for a transaction response from
the
IISADMIN service.

And:   
  ID=7011; Source = Service Control Manager 
  Timeout (300000 miliseconds) waiting for a transaction response from
the
IISADMIN service.

Now I'll state the obvious- after that the Info Store is still available
and people can read messages, but no new messages are coming in.

At that point I either restart IIS or shutdown the server completely. [I
think that on the occaisions I tried to just restart IIS, the SMTP
Service
would not start.]

Initially I thought that this was due to either "Symantec Mail Security
4.6" which is running on the server, or maybe "iHateSpam server
edition".

However, I then realized that it was only 8 hours or so after I had
installed SP2 on the other mail server  that this started to happen.

By the way, these are NOT Front-end/back end servers. Each receives mail
on its own, but they are in the same Administrative Group. [We only have
1
administrative group.]

I will be applying SP2 to the server with the trouble this Sunday or
Monday. In the meantime I wanted to see if anyone was aware of this --
or
maybe tell me if I am barking up the wrong tree.

Thanks for any tips!!!!
