Where to begin... I'd like to first admit that I am not an seasoned Exchange tech. Second here is the environment: (2) 2008 R2 DCs and (1) 2012 R2 MS Exchange 2013 server - other Exchange servers were removed [I've seen remnants of these old servers, but UM has been working fine until yesterday]

Our Exchange 2013 server stopped picking up calls on the voice access number assigned to it, for Unified Messaging. When trying to restart the, it fails to start with the following message Windows could not start the Microsoft Exchange Unified Messaging service on Local Computer. Error 1053: The service did not respond to the start or control request in a timely fashion.

The service will hang on "Starting", but never actually start.

I proceed to the Event Viewer and see ALL sorts of Exchange related messages, however all pertaining to AD. For example:

Error 1007: MSExchange Mailbox Replication

So at this point I run a DCDIAG on the PDC (let's call is DC1, where the only other DC will be called DC2):

To top this all off, DC2 was acting up so I restarted it. It no longer boots into Windows, instead I get this BSOD:

What a cluster, right?

Forgot to add an important query, netdom query fsmo:

  • You need to provide the output of netdom query fsmoon DC1 – Greg Askew Jan 18 at 18:25
  • I've edited the original post to include this crucial piece of information. Thank you Greg. – D19 Jan 18 at 19:16
  • The only functional domain controller doesn't know the FSMO role holders, that's not good. Try ntdsutil as described in method 3: petri.com/determining_fsmo_role_holders – Greg Askew Jan 18 at 20:30
  • Added NTDSUtil output. Thank you so much for your input. – D19 Jan 18 at 21:51
  • Is it pointing to itself for DNS, and is DNS running and all of the required records present? You may also want to check the Directory Services and DNS event logs for anything useful. – Greg Askew Jan 18 at 22:20

You'll need to reconfigure the time service on DC1. You can use the commands below:

net stop w32time
w32tm /unregister
w32tm /register
net start w32time
w32tm.exe /config /manualpeerlist:”time.windows.com” /syncfromflags:manual /reliable:YES /update
w32tm.exe /config /update
net stop w32time
net start w32time

Then run the following command to view the configuration:

w32tm /query /configuration

C:\Users\Administrator>w32tm /query /configuration
