Initialization Failure with Exchange Management Console

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -

The MS Exchange RPC client access service and MS Exchange transport service is not running in my Exchange 2010. Users are not able to connect the exchange server with Outlook 2007. Users use the correct data in connecting but still it doesn't work.

When I am opening the Exchange management console and error message is coming which says ‘initialization’. If anybody knows how to fix this problem, please let me know.

I will be Thankful for all the help and support.

Initialization Failure with Exchange Management Console


Hi Lisette,

Is the Exchange 2010 server hosted on a Hyper V server?

It's possible that there's a time-sync issue causing the initialization failure. Go to the settings for your exchange servers, look for Integration Services, and inside the services box, uncheck the option for "Time Synchronization".

You then need to run net time /set on the servers to sync back their times with the domain controllers.

The next step is to restart the servers. The Exchange services will sync back up properly.

I found a site that discusses this particular error in more detail:

Hopefully, the steps above and the link mentioned help you out in tracking the source of this particular error message.
