Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

You should not install Exchange 2007 on a domain controller. The only case where Exchange should be installed on a domain controller is when it is implemented using the Small Business Server solution.

Its very difficult to make your exchange to get back to its original status when you demote your DC.
