I forgot to mention my problems

1.      starting last night all of sudden system attendant and information
store services went down
2.      I got over 100 error on event log after restart mostly in topology
category
3.      after reboot, I can't even login to server as following logging it
keeps saying applying computer settings with no end
4.      I have almost 50 different event id to follow which makes me more
confused rather than getting helped
5.       I have ran dcdiag and netdiag and don't see any problem there
6.      dns servers are functional properly 
7.      active directory is up and I can successfully replicate between two
domain controllers
8.      ping command work successfully between mail and 2 domain controllers
9.      I have read over 100 knowledge base articles with nothing helping me

 

Blah balh blah

Oh my word, what on earth could be so bad you would even be considering
this?

You don't simply wipe and reinstall Exchange when you're having problems.
This isn't your gaming box that you reinstall Windows on every so often to
increase the performance.  What specific issues are you having?

I suggest you back carefully away from the server keyboard and don't touch
it again until you've read through a good book or taken a class on Exchange
administration.  Or call someone that knows what they're doing and pay
whatever price they name.  You clearly need a hand.

Hello
Thank you for helping. I have to reinstall my exchange box as there are so
many troubles going on and might be better to do a clean install. I am going
to follow these steps. Are these correct?

1.      shutdown the exchange server machine 
2.      go to active directory and find the exchange server machine and then
right click and choose reset account 
3.      reinstall windows and do the updates till the same patch level 
4.      join it to domain using the old machine name it had 
5.      install exchange using disaster recovery mode 
6.      mount the database 


Is everything will be ok if I follow this? Wouldn't I face any domain or
schema problems?
