Hi all
After deploying the exchange 2007 mailbox role, in HMC 4.0 - my information store (service - as well) wont start. I tried allmost anything by now - and I cant seem to crack this one ... [:o]

Im getting event ID: 4001 (system attendant error, but service IS running)
which says:

did you update the exchange schema? I know it's a stupid question but I'm pretty sure you won't be able to install exchange if you didn't.

also, did you try deleting the store and recreate it?




pnorredal -> RE: Exchange 2007 Information store service wont start (4.Dec.2007 1:17:44 AM)

Hi again
I my world no question is a stupid one, but YES ....

Ive updated the schema, running the "Setup /PrepareSchema" - this as you surely know is creating the exchange org. in my active directory, as well as the proper universal (exchange) security groups.

Aften this I run the "Setup /PrepareAD /OrganizationName:"netbios domainname"
which further should prepare my AD for the exchange 2007 installation.

And again - when completing the mailbox role installation task on my mailbox server, my information store wont mount ...

Ive mayby found a reason for this.[&:]

If you (and I) read the error above, its the system attandant admin mailbox/user which is the real problem.

For some reason the "role" or user seems to be missing - or isnt created, when the first storage group - and the corresponding mailbox database is created - at the end of the installation of the mailbox server role.

Making a new database / storage group, wont change that. So for now Ive contacted MS Support for a solution - because Im stuck here ...[:o]

Hopefully they are able to come up with a solution for this problem.

If anyone have had the same or likely experience with exchange 2007, please write me -

Im still quite new to Exchange 2007 - and very new in building Hosted exchange setups with exchange 2007 included.

So anything might help me in completing this process.

best regards

Hiya, Is the network monitor driver enabled on the Network card(s) of you server?

Cheers

A




pnorredal -> RE: Exchange 2007 Information store service wont start (5.Dec.2007 3:52:58 AM)

Hi A.
No - the network monitor driver is not installed on any of my servers network cards.

Should it be ??

Cheers
/P




a.grogan -> RE: Exchange 2007 Information store service wont start (5.Dec.2007 5:02:11 AM)

Hiya, no (unless you are monitoring something [:D]) I have seen it cause issues with Exchange 2007 installations, have MS PSS come back to you yet?

Also would you be willing to share your log files from the install (c:\ExchangeSetupLogs) - obviously not here (as they are very large) but place then on a site somewhere?
They may contain addtional information that will allows us to help you further.
Cheers

A




pnorredal -> RE: Exchange 2007 Information store service wont start (5.Dec.2007 6:49:26 AM)

Hi Andy
Ive taken the liberty to mail the exchange log files to your Gmail account.
Hope thats ok - with U

Cheers
/P




a.grogan -> RE: Exchange 2007 Information store service wont start (5.Dec.2007 7:46:30 AM)

Cheers, can you have a look in your Application Evebnt log and post any error to the with the MSExchangeIS?

Cheers

A




pnorredal -> RE: Exchange 2007 Information store service wont start (5.Dec.2007 7:51:20 AM)

Hi Andy
Sure I can - Ive allready exported the application log, for such purpose [:D]
Please notice, that there are lots and lots of errors regarding the System Attendant admin mailbox / role - which is why (as I wrote) that my error with the Information store, is because of the missing system attendant role/admin mailbox - as of anything else

Ill send it to U, a.s.a.p

/p




a.grogan -> RE: Exchange 2007 Information store service wont start (5.Dec.2007 8:32:00 AM)

Hiya mate I have pinged you another mail, I have found something in the Setup Logs (that I will post in a bit) - can you attempt to start your MSExchangeIs service - can you post the error message that it gives, and post the Application Event Entry for the failure.

Cheers

A




a.grogan -> RE: Exchange 2007 Information store service wont start (5.Dec.2007 9:11:54 AM)

Hiya Chap, can you have a look at: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/285116

And run through it and let me know if that helps?

Cheers

A




pnorredal -> RE: Exchange 2007 Information store service wont start (5.Dec.2007 9:38:49 AM)

hi A
Yessir - I will do
Ill get back to U, in a very short while

If it doesnt help, Ill post the error message U requested, when starting the Exchange Information Store service

/p




pnorredal -> RE: Exchange 2007 Information store service wont start (5.Dec.2007 9:57:50 AM)

nope - sorry mate
Allready checked that - and the service is started with full permissions by the local system account - and the regkey is also present, with the same security credentials.

Ill post U the error message, when I try to start the Exchange Information service, to your Gmail account

cheers
/p





a.grogan -> RE: Exchange 2007 Information store service wont start (5.Dec.2007 10:05:56 AM)

Hiya Ok, I have fired you another mail chap.

Cheers

A




pnorredal -> RE: Exchange 2007 Information store service wont start (5.Dec.2007 10:32:23 AM)

Hi A.
I have strangely enough, not recieved any mail from U. Perhaps It gets caught in or spam filter, because Ure probably sending from your Gmail - right ??

Please post it in here if possible, so I can read the contents - thanks

/p




a.grogan -> RE: Exchange 2007 Information store service wont start (5.Dec.2007 10:34:51 AM)

Hyia mate some more information for you - edited from a TechNet post  One possible error code you may receive is IMAIL_E_CODE_PAGE_CONVERSION (0x80040c07). If this error code occurs, the problem is likely to be that the code pages required for conversion are missing, which could mean that the pages are corrupt or inadvertently uninstalled. If this is the case, the fix is to reinstall the code pages for US ASCII (20127) and Latin 1 (1252). To do this, in Control Panel open Regional and Language Options, select the Advanced tab, and make sure 20127 and 1252 are selected. can you let me know? cheers
A

Excellent - I am pleased - have a good one yourself.
- Sorry every one;

When I was looking at Peters Setup logs I was seeing the following error:

[11/30/2007 10:39:20 AM] [2] The maximum wait for the operation is set to 'unlimited'.
[11/30/2007 10:39:20 AM] [2] Service checkpoint has progressed. Previous checkpoint='0' - Current checkpoint='1'.

[11/30/2007 10:39:30 AM] [2] [ERROR] Service 'MSExchangeIS' failed to start. Check the event log for possible reasons for the service start failure.
[11/30/2007 10:39:30 AM] [2] Ending processing.
[11/30/2007 10:39:30 AM] [1] The following 1 error(s) occurred during task execution:
[11/30/2007 10:39:30 AM] [1] 0.  ErrorRecord: Service 'MSExchangeIS' failed to start. Check the event log for possible reasons for the service start failure.
[11/30/2007 10:39:30 AM] [1] 0.  ErrorRecord: Microsoft.Exchange.Configuration.Tasks.ServiceFailedToStartException: Service 'MSExchangeIS' failed to start.

This was followed by setup tring to create and mount the databases - which could not happen as the IS was not running.

I asked Peter to send over the BPA xml logs so I could have a look at them and they suggested looking at the knowledge base article that I posted previously (this didn't work).

I then asked Peter to send over his MSExchangeIS event logs only - which revealed the following error with the content engine: 0x80040c07 - now by chance I had seen this in my test lab yesterday and when I was looking for a solution I found the following on TechNet: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb217712.aspx

I hope that this helps

Cheers

A
