SBS 2011 running Trend WFBS 7 Advanced. On boot, machine would hang at “Applying Computer Settings”. After analysing the event logs, noticed quite a few 12028 logs with the Transport service in a “Starting” state.
Fix: re-create the Transport database.
1. Stop Transport service – if need be, set to manual and reboot server (if you cannot access server at the console)
2. rename %Systemdir%\Program Files\Microsoft\Exchange Server\V14\TransportRoles\data\Queue to Queue.old.
3. Start Transport service
