We have restored our active directory from a backup and now exchange won't start for some reason. The service that won't start is the Microsoft Exchange Information Store. It comes up with this message:
Error 1068: The dependency service or group failed to start..
I am guessing this has something to do with permissions but am not really sure where to start looking. I have perused various articles on the internet but am not sure the best place to start.
This is the error in the event log:
Process INETINFO.EXE (PID=1636). Topology Discovery failed, error 0x80040931. I have looked up the ID but I don't really understand what the problem is.
EDIT: When trying to start the windows service attendant service this error is in the event viewer:
Unexpected error Logon failure: unknown user name or bad password. Facility: Win32 ID no: 8007052e Microsoft Exchange System Attendant occurred. If I could reset this password (or at least see which user it is) I would be in a good starting place.
