I installed the new hard disks & followed the instructions on MS's website.  The machine is the same hardware, same name, IP address, just new harddrives.  After installation & updates, I can run the Exchange Admin program and see mailboxes, etc, but MTA does not start.  Event log gives the following errors:

Event Type:    Error
Event Source:    MSExchangeMTA

Event ID:    137

User:        N/A
Computer:    KDC01E
Description:
A fatal directory error occurred. Change to the maximum logging level for more details. [MTA MAIN BASE 1 15] (16)

If I start the Event Service, then try to start MTA, ES stops and I get this:

Any word on what I can do to get this up and running?

Well, got those errors taken care of (registry issues), but now the Event Service won't run:

Event Type:    Error
Event Source:    MSExchangeES
Event Category:    General
Event ID:    5

Any ideas?  Overall, e-mail's working, so I'm okay as long as it stays working.

Well, it's Exchange 5.5.  We were receiving the 1018 error in the logs, which I was instructed it was a hardware issue tied to either the hard disk, or controller.  I replaced the two drives with three new drives, re-installed the OS, installed EX and patches/SP, and copied the original databases over.  Everything appears to be up and running, as there was one random registry key I missed.

Everything's well now.

I looked through every registry entry under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services that pertained to Exchange, mostly in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\MSExchangeMTA\Parameters for your MTA issue, for any key that had the organization & site name in it (/o=ORGANIZATION/ou=SITE/cn=Configuration/cn=Servers/cn=SERVER/cn=Microsoft MTA).

The problem I had was the display name of the site was 'Services KDC', while the actual name was SVCKDC, so I entered in the incorrect information when I re-installed Exchange.  Once I realized this, I hunted through the multiple MSExchange folders and changed all the keys I found, but I happened to miss one.  Once I got that corrected, everything worked, and has been working.
