Have you had a look at this article http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;Q245024 Ross -----Original Message----- From: Marvin Cummings [mailto:marvc@xxxxxxxxxxxxx] Sent: Monday, April 22, 2002 8:22 PM To: [ExchangeList] Subject: [exchangelist] Jacked up Exchange server!!! http://www.MSExchange.org/ Exchange 2000 Server Newbie... I have reason to believe that my exchange server install is completely screwed up and need to know if there's anyway to resolve this without having to rebuild my entire network?? 1. From what I can tell the exchange service isn't starting. 2. If i go to my AD users & computers console I see what appears to be an OU for Microsoft Exchange System Objects, but its not a folder, it looks as though its not associated with anything. 3. If i attempt to start the mailbox management process via the System Manager, I get an error that the Microsoft Exchange System Attendant Service is unavailable. ID no: c1031668 This is the 2nd time I've un-inistalled and re-installed this exchange server. Can anyone shed some light onto this otherwise dismal situation? :-< TIA ------------------------------------------------------ You are currently subscribed to this MSExchange.org Discussion List as: Ross@xxxxxxxxxxxxxx To unsubscribe send a blank email to $subst('Email.Unsub') This message (and any associated files) is intended only for the use of the individual or entity to which it is addressed and may contain information that is confidential, subject to copyright or constitutes a trade secret.
