Our Exchange 2000 server died. I'm trying to install it on another box, using the same server name,
to avoid having to update 1000 user PCs. I've removed every mention that I could find, of Exchange
in AD. While doing an install on the new server I get;
'The component 'Microsoft Exchange Messaging & Collaboration Services" cannot be assigned the action
-A server object for this server "server name" already exists in the Administrative Group "First Administrative
Group". You must either remove this server object before installing, or run setup with the "DisasterRecovery"
switch if you're attempting to recover this server.
Any ideas on what I need to do? Thanks in advance
