Reboot Script for Exchange Server

September 21, 2010 1 comment

Sometimes rebooting your Exchange server can be a painful experience. Common issues are: very long time to shut down or boot up the server after a restart, or the database goes into a “dirty shutdown” state.

Here is a simple script that should alleviate these issues (create a new .bat file and paste these commands into it):

net stop FSCController /y

net stop MSExchangeADTopology /y

net stop MSExchangeIS

shutdown /t 0 /r

After creating the .bat file just double click it and the Forefront and Exchange services will be gracefully stopped and the server will reboot.
