This problem occurs when the Microsoft Exchange Server 2003 component of Small Business Server 2003 is installed. Event 8026 is generated every time that the computer shuts down or starts. This event occurs because of differences in the timing between services as they stop and start. You can ignore this event if it occurs during computer shutdown and startup.
