ME Information Store & Transport Fail To Start RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am the network administrator for a small network of computers managed using Microsoft Small Business Server 2008. A few weeks ago, I started experiencing problems with Microsoft Exchange Server. Anytime the server is restarted, two key services fail to start. I believe that this started after applying an update, but I'm not sure. The two services that fail to start are:

    Microsoft Exchange Information Store
    Microsoft Exchange Transport

    In order to get these services to start, I have to manually start them using the service manager (services.msc). Both of the services (according to services.msc) are set to start automatically.

    Has anyone else encountered this problem? Any help would be greatly appreciated, it's a small problem but still a bit of a pain.

  • You need to change the dependency of these services or configure BootPause registry to start it after reboot. Refer below KB to configure it...

    Exchange 2007 services cannot start automatically after you install Exchange 2007 on a global catalog server
