Laughing Matters - XADM: Directory Won't Start if System Date Later Than 2038

In this knowledge base article, Microsoft confirms a problem in Exchange 4.0 or 5.0. Event IDs 1121 and 5000 are logged when starting the Exchange server, which indicate that the Information Store service is not reachable (or not started).

Cause: The Directory service will not start if the system date is later than January 17, 2038.

There's no need to upgrade, however, because Microsoft is researching this problem and will post new information in the Microsoft Knowledge Base as it becomes available... :-)

Regards, Rene
