I have recently inhereted a Windows 2000 AD integrated network. We are running Exchange 2000 that was (improperly) migrated to from Exchange 5.5. The Exchange 5.5 box no longer exist and has been removed from AD via ADSI edit. However the old 5.5 server is listed in the Exchange System Manager of the new Exchange 2000 server. I have several public folders that still point to the old server for file replication.

How do I remove all instances/ references to the old server out of Exhange 2000?
