exchange directory service won't start

By network_ops ·
Running Exchange Server 5.5 SP3 on NT 4.0 SP6a. Can't get EDS to start; gives error 2140, and nothing in the KB is helping. Also tried eseutil and found no corrupt databases.

Any ideas or more info that is needed?

Thanks

Look in the Event Viewer. These problems are usually caused by another REQUIRED service that failed to start. Look at the FIRST stop error to find out what it was then figure out what caused it. If you can get that stop error to not stop any longer then rest of your services should start no problem. Let me know if this helps. -Corey Hitchcock, IT Manager, Interdev Technologies Inc.

Hi did you change the server name or did the services account changed password. If you use administrator as the service account and the password changed you would have problems. I suggest that you create a service account and change the startup of the exchange services to this account. You also need to change the service account in Exchange itself...

I'm having the same trouble, only on the Event Services. All other services have started, so there doesn't seem to be dependency issues. I've changed the service account password to itself, but I can't get this thing running.
Any other thoughts?
TIA,
Christine

You may have a corrupt database. Stop all exchange services and run eseutil and Isinteg to analyze and possibly repair. READ up on these utilities before invoking!

Good Luck
