Applying RPC vulenrability patch

By jgryck ·
After applying Microsofts NT server 4.0 SBS patch.
I am receiving a 1068 error and can not start no exchange 5.5 services.
It appears some dependency services are missing.
Thank you in advance for your help.

You must first ensure you are running the latest service pack... Install 6a 128 bit, then run the patch, should be good after that

When you start the Microsoft Exchange System Attendant, you may receive the following error message:

Could not start the Microsoft Exchange System Attendant on computer

Error 1068: The dependency service or group failed to start.
This behavior occurs if one of the services that the System Attendant depends on cannot be started.
On computers that are running Microsoft Windows NT 4.0, you can verify in Registry Editor that all the dependency services listed under the following key have started:

On computers that are running Microsoft Windows 2000, to check what services another service is dependent on:
On the Start menu, point to Programs, point to Administrative Tools, and then click Services.
Right-click the service, and then click the Dependencies tab. This tab lists not only what sevices this service is dependent on, but also what services are dependent on this one.

So, since you have NT4 SBS, check the Registry key for the DependonService services that must start.
Open Services in the Control Panel, and see if they are running. If not, then start them.
