Somehow the Exchange computer account was corrupted.  We are not sure how
this happened yet.  This caused several other problems.  We deleted the
computer account from the DC and then added it again.  Rebooted the Exchange
server and found that the System Attendant would not start.  (major
We were receiving several errors in the Event Log.  We finally gave in and
called Microsoft.  They didn't have a clue what the problem was.  We sent
them our Event Log and then started doing some research while waiting for
them to get back with us.  
We found several article listing the event errors that we were getting.  We
ran Domain Prep from the CD and we think that this combined with doing what
other articles suggested was what ultimately fixed the problem.  Microsoft
called us back and they still had no answer.  We rebooted after making the
changes and it worked.  I am now very concerned about what caused this to
happen.  I have listed the KB articles that we used below.  It would be
easier for you to look at them instead of trying to write it all out.  Let
me know what you find out.

Has anyone every had any issues with a corrupt (Exchange) computer account
on the domain controller?  I just had the issue this morning and wanted to
hear thoughts from the group.  We have no idea how this happened.
