Microsoft Exchange System Attendant starts and then stops RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi, I just migrated from an exchange 2003 machine to an exchange 2007.  But whenever I try to create a mail box it tells me it can't find a server with the address list service running.  I checked, and sure enough the Microsoft Exchange System Attendant service isn't running.  So I start it, and then it tells me
    "the service started and then stopped.  Some services automatically stop when not in use".   I get no other error message.  Any ideas what's happening?

  • You should be getting some event when you are trying to start the system attendant and its failing.

    Also make sure if all the dependent servers are started. Do have a look at this article http://exchangeserverinfo.com/2007/06/21/how-to-troubleshoot-system-attendant-service-not-starting-issues.aspx

    Are there events recorded in the Application Log, too?

  • Yes. Please check is there any error logged in Event Logs.

    In addition, please run dcdiag /s:<DC name> to check the connection between your Exchange server and your DC.
