Exchange Server 2003 Exchange Services stopped working.


I have a Windows SBS (2003), which is my domain controller and Exchange Server (2003) is installed. Arrived on site this morning only to discover that Outlook was not opening. Check the Small Business Server and it was running. However, most of the Exchange Services stopped running:

I tried to restart the services, but they kept not. I even rebooted a couple of times in hopes that I get lucky but luck was not on my side. Here is the error message and the system logs, I got the failure:

Windows could not start the Microsoft Exchange Information Store on the Local computer. For more information, see the system event log. If it is a non-Microsoft service, contact the service vendor and refer to service 0-specific error code.

In the system event log:

Source: Service Control Manager

Category: None

The event ID: 7024

Description: The Microsoft Exchange Information Store service stopped with the error special service 0 (0x0).

I also have a couple of events in the Application log:

Source: MSExchangeIS

Category: general

The event ID: 5000

Description: Could not initialize the Microsoft Exchange Information Store service. Failed to initialize security - error 0 x 80004005.

Source: MSExchangeSA

Category: Monitoring

The event ID: 9098

Description: "The analysis MAD thread was unable to read its configuration from the directory service, error ' 0x8007007e".

I tried to uninstall and reinstall the SMTP Protocol, but it did not help. I also watched some wires, but they seem not directly related to my question.

When I tried to start the STMP service, it is to get the error message: failed to start the service SMTP Simple Mail Transfer Protocol () on the Local computer. Error 126: The specified module could not be found.

It's the system log:

Source: Service Control Manager

Category: None

The event ID: 7023

Description: SMTP Simple Mail Transfer Protocol () service terminated with the following error: the specified module could not be found.

The server worked fine the day before and it did nothing for the server that I can recall which will trigger such.

I have TrendMicro Worry Free Business installed on the server but I also exclusion of files/folders to the Exchange folders / file (s). At this setting for a few years and nothing has changed. No update or something has been done since the last time it was running.

Although I have included one or two mistakes, I got messages and logs for all services failed.


This issue is beyond the scope of this site and must be placed on Technet or MSDN

  • Receive the error "Windows Media Center Receiver Service stopped working and was closed" after the video card replaced

    I have a HP computer with Windows Vista Home Premium (32-bit) Service Pack 2.  He has a VISX PureTV tuner card and already had an NVidia GeForce 8400 graphics card.  This Setup has worked well for 2.5 years until what the graphics card died last week.  It has been replaced with an ATI Radeon HD3450 and both all Windows updates have made current.  Since that time, the TV tuner did not work.

    When you sign in to an account, it gives the error message "Windows Media Center Receiver Service stopped working and was closed".  I can use Media Center to watch the recorded video before, but if I try to watch live TV he hangs up and close Media Center.  If I try to configure the TV connection in Media Center it tells me that there is no tuner card.

    I looked at the map and see no problem and I tried it back in place.  He has the most up to date drivers (so does the new Radeon graphics btw).  I tried "Uninstall" in the Manager of devices and then put it back, but it was not good.

    "Windows Media Center Receiver Service Stopped Working and was closed" I tried all the fixes I've seen this error.

    I tried all the things I saw here and elsewhere related to this issue.  I did a "clean boot" with all non-Windows services and the disabled startup process.  He always did the same thing and gave the same mistakes.  It seems to be linked to a Windows service, and I hesitate to begin deactivation to track down.

    I ran 'sfc' in mode 'cmd' and he found no problem and none of the files to be fixed or could not fix.

    In the list of services, I changed the login for "Windows Media Center Receiver Service" to "Local System account", Local Service, Network Service and individual accounts, but no permits.

    I'm afraid I'm at the point of having to reload the Vista, but I don't know how to do this and want to avoid at all costs.  I don't have the recovery disks and software.  Is this enough?  Can I reinstall from the recovery disks without wiping everything aft of the configuratiion with which it was delivered?  I guess personal files will be OK (although I don't know this for sure), but I'm afraid I'll have to reinstall other applications, my family has developed over time and perhaps lose the media protected by DRM licenses.

    Someone has encountered anything like this or have any suggestions?

    Well, I finally stumbled into the solution.  It was caused by a conflict with another application.

    A few weeks before the card failure I had installed a program called video capture Replay Video Capture that I had bought a few months ago and never used.  However, at this time where everything including the TV tuner and Media Center worked well that's why I associate the problem with this software.  The problem comes after the system is rebooted the first time after installation.  In my case, it has not been rebooted until a few weeks later as part of the recovery of the fault of the graphics card.  Suddenly, the TV tuner did not work and I get the error messages mentioned in this title of the thread.

    I was at the end of my rope with this and was just to clean your system to do a reformat and reinstallation.  I uninstalled the Replay Videa Capture program to move it to another computer, and when you restart the computer I noticed that the error message disappeared.  Of course I went to the Media Center and could set up my TV tuner card and watch television.

    Looking for some info on this conflict, I found the following. (  It is difficult to say who is at fault in the present.  I'm sure that Microsoft accuses Applian for the encoder to mpeg ( used in Replay Video Capture, while Applian says that the problem is a Windows process (ehrec.exe) that works all the time, hogging the tuner on the system device.  According to Applian other products similar to theirs have this conflict as well due to the process of Windows.

    Fortunately, there is a solution in this case.  Applian has released a new version of Replay Video Capture (version 4.2) that uses a different mpeg encoder and eliminates the problem.  Given the surprising lack of info about it on the Microsoft Web site, I wonder how many other people with this unresolved issue dealing with the same thing as me.  If you're like me and you don't usually need to reboot your PC for a few weeks at a time, you may never know to associate the problem with the application.  What a waste countless hours trying to diagnose, and most disconcerting, that's what I was about to go through a reformat and reinstall because of this.

    Thought I'd post here my problem resolution in the hope that it might help someone else.

    Hello Adrian,.

    Thank you for visiting Microsoft Community.

    I understand you get error message "Windows Server 2008 R2 has stopped working correctly" in your computer maintenance center. Apart from this, your computer works fine.

    This error message appears because of political use of heavy group, and the presence of SCOM, causing a deadlock condition between the processes Lsass.exe, redirect Drive Buffering Subsystem (Rdbss.sys) driver and the Winsock Kernel.

  • Any Web Service stops working when it is deployed

    I change a dashboard application to access a web service rather than using XML. He works in the debugger, but stops working whenever I deploy the HTML/SWF on a web server.

    If I access the HTML from the local file system, it works. (file://path/swf.html) As soon as I try loading from the web server, the SWF file loads, but the call to the web service simply never happens. (http://localhost/swf.html) I used a packet sniffer to look for the call to the web service and I tried to look at the service site. I can see the call when I use the ' leader: ' method or debugging of Flex Builder, but not using the "http:" method.

    I imported the WSDL file, then I use generated code.

    I have the following text in the file crossdomain.xml on the server hosting the SWF file and the server hosting the web service. (I don't think it's necessary to be both, but I'm sick of ideas).

    <? XML version = "1.0"? >
    < ! DOCTYPE cross-domain-policy SYSTEM "" > ""
    < cross-domain-policy >
    < allow-access-from domain = "" * "/ >"
    < / cross-domain-policy >

    Here, any help would be appreciated.

    Thank you


    Try adding a to your MXML, launch your application in Flex Builder debugging and watch the console for detailed tracing information.

    Have you registered fault event listeners on your service to report the defects?

    If you do not have a remote web service, you must also enable the HTTP SOAPAction request header be sent from domain of your SWF too. See: headers
