  • This issue has been fixed by MS by releasing a fix. Pls go to http://support.microsoft.com/kb/974571 and download the fix & then you can install KB97451 & then this fix to resolve the issue on OCS or OCS R2 server. The activation of R2 server is also successful after applying this fix..
    This fix will resolve both issue OCS service not starting on existing installation & new OCS 2007/R2 deployment (Activation issue)
