Old ADC connector left over since migration from old decommissioned Exchange Server

Recently migrated from Exchange 2000 Server running on Windows 2000 Server to Exchange 2003 Server running on Windows Server 2003.

The old Exchange 2000 Server had previously been migrated from Exchange 5.5 and still had an old ADC running on it.

The old 2000 Server is now decomissioned.  (Did rehome site folders and depromote server to no longer be a DC at the time.)

Getting error logged in event log on new server:  Error Event 8026:  LDAP Bind was unsuccessful on directory <domain> for distinguished name ""

Active Directory Sites and Services still lists the old server, and there is still an ADC connector defined between the old server and the new server.


*** As I am now running completely within an Active Directory based domain (Windows 2000 and Windows 2003) am I right to assume I can just delete the ADC connector service in Sites and Services and then delete the reference to the old computer as well?  Is there any other tidy up process I need to go through - given that the old server is already decommissioned? ***


Thanks

Thanks for these suggestions.

To delete the old ADC Connector, I ended up running the ADC Connector setup off the Exhange Server 2003 install CD and chose the uninstall option from there.  This resolved my original problem.

The MS KB links were useful because I still had an Offline Address Book that hadnt properly been rehomed to my new server.  I had no server listed in the Replication tab.  I added my new server in there to home the OAB.
