Hi guys,
Noone is responding to this question:
http://experts-exchange.com/Networking/Email_Groupware/Exchange_Server/Q_21149689.html

alternately the same question has a subquestion:
How , if at all possible, can you undo the forestprep and domainprep that Exchange Server 2003 installation performs??
Does undoing those remove the remants of what Exchange has done to the system?

appreciate any help

The only way that you can undo the forestprep and domainprep is a complex procedure involving backups and restoring system state. This can have other consequences in the environment - not least breaking any Exchange 2003 installations. For most people the process is a one time deal.

I suspect that no one is responding to the other question because it is NNTP - which hardly anyone uses anymore. I know that none of the sites I administrate use it - the managers probably don't even know what it is.

Thanks for the response Sembee,

Gotcha, yeah I think it is no problem to just re-install the whole server because this is a new server we are building, if push-comes-to-shove.

Well, Exchange will not install without NNTP ,and i keep getting that error when I try to add a new NNTP Vir.Dir. I guess I ll have to call MS support or something.
