Microsoft Exchange 2007
Hello - our organization had an exchange server 2007 that got wiped. We have a new Exchange server 2007 up and it is running fine however the active directory still thinks the old 2007 server is around and so the new exchange server 2007 has it showing up in the server configuration panel in the exchange management console. Before I remove references to it from the domain controller is there anything I need to know. Googling this issue didn't get any relevant hits. Can anyone help? By the way our exchange server does all the roles (i.e. hub transport server, etc.) The old exchange server was a test install the should never have gotten onto our production domain. Thanks, David

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

You say the old server was “wiped”, does that mean you did a complete uninstall of exchange from it? I’m afraid if you just wiped the drive without actually uninstalling exchange then your AD still thinks it is there. However you can still remove it using <a href=”http://www.msexchange.org/tutorials/Remove-Exchange-server-entire-Exchange-organization.html”>ADSIEDIT</a>.

Also, it’s not exactly what you’re looking for, but this might help — at least it’s EXCH 2007-specific:
