Message: %1: The RPC call to the service to bring the resource online failed.
You will receive the following phrase in the Event Description:

Cluster service failed the remote procedure call (RPC) to start the resource.

This event does not refer to a specific Exchange resource, or Exchange service.

The event most commonly refers to the Exchange System Attendant, Information

Store, or Routing Engine.

This event is usually associated with other related events when the System

Attendant fails to come online. It can also been seen as an associated event

when other Exchange services fail to come online. There are many reasons for an

Exchange resource not to come online. One common reason for the System Attendant

resource not to come online is that the System Attendant fails to contact a

Global Catalog server.

User Action
The first step is to check all related events in the Application and System logs

to determine any associated events which may explain why the resource failed to

come online.

In some cases, correcting the root cause of the System Attendant failing to come

online has resolved the issue. In other cases, the cause for the failure of the

System Attendant to come online has not been able to be determined, and the

removing and recreating the resource has resolved the issue.
