Are you running the Event service as System Account or a dedicated
Service account ?

        I've been pouring through the Knowledge base and Technet for
some time now trying to figure this out so maybe someone out there knows
the answer or fix. Okay here's the situation I have a cluster Exchange
2000 Server, and no matter what I do the Exchange Event service won't
stay started. It starts, then reports the error below and stops. Now
there is a KB article that somewhat relates to this but I states that it
will cause this behavior if there is already a
EventsConfig_Mailservername folder under your system folder, problem is
that I don't have that folder at all, so that kinda make null and void
of that KB, as an FYI.  If anyone has any ideas I am more than open to
hear them.
