Exchange Trasport Service not starting


  • I have Exchange 2010, and I'm trying to upgrade it from SP1 to SP2 R6. i have 4 servers. the first one went fine and the second one which has CAS and HUB roles updated successfully but the Transport Service is not starting. I search on google and found that I have to enable IPV6 but no luck. I have removed HUB role and when I install it again it is failing.

    In the install log i found this error (Service 'MSExchangeTransport' failed to reach status 'Running' on this server after waiting for '25000' milliseconds.)

    please advice.

  • Is there anything in the Application event log?

    Can you start the service manually?

  • Is that the same error when you run the installation with Run As Administrator?

  • Hello,

    I agree with Rich's suggestion.

    How does the result after you start the service manually?

    If the issue persits, please post the detailed event id and event source.

    Besides, I recommend you use EXBPA against your exchange server health check.
