Microsoft Exchange system attendant service started and then stopped.

Microsoft Exchange system information service failed to start

I was trying to install Exchange server mailbox server role in my organization where I already had exchange server 2007 and exchange server 2010. I installed additional server roles in my test environment and I was able to do that successfully in test but as soon as I tried to do it in live environment it started failing. I was just shocked had my heart in my hands and then I started searching things for it.

I searched on internet and I found lot of useful links but none of them worked for me. I am posting few of them here because it might be useful for you in case my trick do not work for you.

You can have any of above solution in your system to check if it’s working for you. Before trying these solutions make sure you check if your clock setting and time zone of your exchange server is correct and synch with your domain controller.

If time is not synch on your server and client machine than I would suggest you to do following

1) First synch time on your ADC server and client server

2) Now remove server from active directory using ADSI edit.

adsiedit -->connect-->configuration-->services-->MS Exchange -->infobeans-->Microsoft Exchange -->infobeans -->Administrator group-->exchange Administrative group-->servers

3) Delete your failed email server from here.

4) Restart your Active Directory Server.

5) Install a new exchange server and this time it should work fine.

You can find many more links online and you will have to select that as per you need. This is just one solution that may or may not work for you.

Please apply it on your own risk I am not responsible for this.

Thanks
