Workaround for Exchange services time out

Member Mark Jannell offers a workaround for when Exchange services time out before system and AD are fully initialized.

If you are running Exchange 5.5 SP3 on a Windows 2000 Server SP1, AD configured, the Exchange services may time

out before system and Active Directory are fully initialized.

A workaround is to set all used Exchange services to manual, then after Active Directory is stabilized, toggle your Exchange services. (Or better yet, install Exchange on a dedicated machine that is not a domain controller as recommended by Microsoft.)
