    Have you looked at the Properties of the Service and reviewed any recovery options set, if there?

      Every time the power goes out, Exchange goes down?

      Maybe you need to give us a bit more detail about your setup, as that seems like a normal reaction

        Or may be its time to invest in a business continuity strategy like a UPS or a generator..

          Can you conifrm that the service is disabled when running on UPS or after it has powered off and you logon back into windows.

          A service disabling is strange. Should the Exchange server be running on UPS including DCs etc, providing the switch they connect to is also on UPS, the services should be unaffected, depending on the timescale to get electricity back. Should the Exchange server not be able to connect to a DC, there is the chance that services may stop but AFAIK, they shouldn't disable.

          Give recommendations below a try.

            Hi,

            Actually I can confirm that sometimes the service does not start, regardless of retry on fail settings. My Exchange server is a (W2K3 R2 64Bit, Ex2K7) VM running on a W2K8 Host. When I reboot the exchange server it starts no problem. If I reboot the host (and rely on it/Hyper-V to shutdown the VMs), the service usually does not start.

            I've just got into the habit of manually shutting down the VMs when I have to reboot the host (ie. for patching).

              Yes, you should always power down the guests before powering down or rebooting the host. That's half the problem right there.

                Have you set the VM for delayed startup -- I've seen that make a difference (although no obvious reasons why)
