    Exchange 5.5

    Locked

    by sonja.laubscher ·

    Exchange is running on a Pentium II, 450 Mhz machine. We upgraded the memory from 256MB to 512MB. After a reboot I get the following error “172 – System configuration Nonvolatile memory invalid – initialization aborted”. It still proceed to boot though. The event viewer gives me the following “System Information Insight Agent – Compaq Health Post Error Detected”. The services for Exchange does not want to start and I get “The dependency service or group failed to start”. At one point it did give me an error message of the RPC which I didnt write down though. Can you assist?

      Did you only get this error after adding the extra memory? If that is true, they you may have two types of memory. Compaq’s are famous for wanting only memory supplied by Compaq. Also check the speed of the memory. Do you have pc133, and pc66 mixed? If you do, then change them so that they all match. Check these things first.

      Hi Sonja,
      When you change any memory chips on a server hosting exchange server, you have to re-install the latest service pack after the upgrade. It will resolve all your problems.

      Hope it help…
