From a newsgroup post: "I had just completed a hardware upgrade of Exchange 2000 server using the upgrade path described in the ME297289 article. The "new" installation was successful. However I had to manually mount the information stores after I restart the server. This happened every time I restarted the server. Once Iíve mounted the stores everything worked like a champ. I was receiving this event along with event 8260 from: MSExchangeAL. After a few days trying to fix this problem I finally called Tech Support only to find that there is a check box EX Sys Manager->storage group->database tab->"do not mount this store at start up" that is checked by default".
This message shows which domain controllers will be used by Exchange for Directory Access lookups.
