Most of you Microsoft Exchange Server 2007 admins or Loadgen users as have been confronted with the problem described here : (Exchange 2007 managed code services do not start after you install an update rollup for Exchange 2007).
Those who read the above technote probably felt as I did that every solution given where stupid. You know what? They are ! Who wants to configure Internet access on an Exchange server?
A very good description and the ‘right” solution is given by Nino and the team on the EHLO blog : http://msexchangeteam.com/archive/2008/07/08/449159.aspx
I’ve taken the liberty to automate the .config file modification for you, just run the script on your server and this will do the job:
ChangeExchangeConfigFile.PS1 will create, modify any .config file for :
Exchange services only (checking them against the service database)
Any exchange .exe file in the Exchange installation folder
or any path you will want to give
Click here for the script itself.
Edit : small bug correction on the script.
Edit2: (version 1.2) let’s home is is the last bug !
