After uninstalling EVault Cloud Disaster Recovery and rebooting the server, MSEXCHANGEDIAGNOSTOCS service fails to start.


EVault Cloud Disaster Recovery is unable to reset some services to automatic due to permission limitations.


If the EVault Cloud Disaster Recovery IIS Plug-in was not uninstalled using the EVault Cloud Disaster Recovery Manager prior to uninstalling EVault Cloud Disaster Recovery, perform the following steps:

  1. Run the following commands in a command prompt (or copy - paste them in a .BAT file, and run it).
