Anyone know how to re add an exchange server to an org. prefably without having to uninstall/reinstall?
One of my admins accidentally deleted one of the FE OWA servers and using the exchange system manager and I would rather not have to R/R everthing....

If the server was removed from the Org you are probably going to have to uninstall and then reinstall ... since it is a front end this should be a fairly quick process ..

You might try to reinstall over top of the existing first ...

If you have a backup from times while you still had that server you could maybe try an Active Directory Authorative Restore. You can do it if you AD isn't large. For a large AD I would rather go with a new Exchange installation

Its a frontend server - I wouldn't even consider the potential problems by trying to shoehorn the server back in.
Uninstall and reinstall - as BNettles73 says it will not take very long.
