When the KDC goes away - service stops

Hello, all.


First, my setup - a rather non-descript one, with a single Exchange 2003 mailbox server in a native Windows 2003 AD domain, two DCs and BES 5.0.0 running on a Windows 2003 32bit server. Database is MSSQL 2005 running on a separate box.


The issue is this: Our DCs are updated weekly, When they reboot, the BES server can't authenticate to the database (of course) or Exchaneg servercausing a failure of the Messaging Service, until I either re-start the services or reboot the whole box.


I intend to have the DC reboots staggered next time, but if we somehow lose both DCs for a minute in the future BES will go south again. I'd rather it die completely if it can't connect to the database or Exchange for any reason. That would let me restart it after 5 minutes automatically or get a warning or something, rather than have my CIO call my cell to complain. Is there any way to configure this, or am I just going to have to monitor the situation manually?

If it is weekly then run a script to reboot BES a few minutes later.


All my update/reboots are manual so BES gets booted last.
