Uninstall of Exchange 2000 with 2003 running

Hey guys

I have a quick question I have two domain controllers 2000/2003 both of them have Exchange on them but on the 2000 machine I have the services stopped because I migrated all the mailboxes to the 2003 machine. My questions to you people is when I uninstall  exchange 2000 will it affect the schema on the exchange 2003 seeing that they both share the same active direcory instances.

I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Follow this article from Microsoft. It explains exactly how to remove the first Exchange server. You will need to start the old server's services back up again as I expect you haven't moved some of the services that Exchange/AD required across.
