I had a 2003 domain with six server plus an exchange 2003 server. My company was purchased by a larger corporation and a trust was established between the corporate network and my domain. All email must go through the corporate 2007 exchange server. I have stopped my exchange services and disabled them after a sucessful migration to the corporate email server. The exchange 2003 has a/d and dns running on it. This server has many shared folders for the various users/groups. Shutting it down and rebuilding is not an option. The problem exists where on occasions the workstations believe that the exchange 2003 server is where the email rresides. I had to uninstalled exchange and reinstalled and IIS a couple of times, What is the quickest way to unstall exchange 2003 from the server and remove all it's references in the a/d, registry and etc?

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

You can use the ADSI editor from the resource kit to remove the remaining references to the Exchange 2003 server from your AD catalog. We had to do this so that our old Dev Exchange 2003 server wouldn’t be the primary Exchange server in our domain.

Some info is provided here.
