I am not sure if there is a service that is not running, but I've seen
status under maintenance when I have a recovery storage group.

I had something like in the past and I am trying to find the article that
solved it for me. As soon as I find it I will post it here.

I have a strange issue with one of my Exchange 2003 servers. Under status in
System Manager it lists the server name with a status of Critical:Service
not running. Clicking on the Default Microsoft Exchange Services lists all
Exchange Services and all are listed with a state of Running. Reviewing the
services from Computer Manager/Services also shows that all services are
running. Services have been restarted and the entire server has been
restarted. Event viewer has no suspicious events. Mail is flowing as
expected. Any ideas why this is showing as service not running and or how to
