  • 1. Is the Rollup Installation successful or did it fail. Can you check ExchangeSetup.msilog to see if the rollup 7 installation was successful ?

    2. Can you also check if you have any errors/events logged in which is .net related ?

    3. Is that service running under Local Account or Network Service Account ?
