Unable to initialize the Microsoft Exchange Information Store service. Error <error>.

In my case (error 0xfaf), I deleted the subnet in AD that had the mail server. Therefore, the Exchange was unable to locate the DC/GC in its site. After recreating the subnet, all the services started like a charm.
