    We have a Windows 2008 Server 64-bit running Exchange 2007.
    No Exchange services will start as they are dependent on the event log
    service starting.

    Error message
    "Windows could not start the Windows Event Log Service on SERVER1."
    "Error 87: The parameter is incorrect."

  2. Hello rodney123,

    Do you have any errors in the event viewer?

    Hi Meinolf,

    thanks for your reply.

    I cannot start the event viewer as the event log service wont start.

    It is now happening on all our 2008 servers including one of our DC's. I am
    left with no option but to rebuild the servers???

  4. Hello rodney123,

    Even this has not really to do with your system, i would give it a try:

    It is just another service with the same error.

    Best regards
