Exchange Server Down

By dustymac13 ·
Last night we had a power failure and our windows 2000 server went down. I got the server back up however exchange is not working. I have our website on this machine and it is working fine. Also I can ftp into it but can not remote desktop to the server. This server is about 3 hours away from me so I am trying to avoid travel. If anyone has any possible hints or solutions PLEASE help?

thanks,
JMT

if there is someone at the remote site to help you out, I would have them shut the server down gracefully and start it back up. If that doesn't help, get someone to read you the event logs with big red Xs to see whats going on and why the exchange will not start up. Hope that helps.

Well, I had someone restart the server. The server took 30 min. to load windows however exchange is back up and running. Thanks for the advice. Any idea why it took so long to log on?

Thanks!
