Exchange error code 0x80072030
Posted on 2006-05-16
I have an Exchange 2000/2003 mixed environment and I'm trying to remove Exchange 2000 from the organization. Exchange 2000 is installed on a domain controller. A previous admin had gone thru the procedures detailed in the KB 307917 article "How to remove the first Exchange 2000 Server computer from the site". I verified that these procedures were followed. However, when I try to run uninstall, I receive the error code 0x80072030 which indicates that an object is missing. I found that the missing object is the local machine's post master account. How do I remap the msExchAdminMailbox to a valid postmaster account? If I can not find a valid postmaster account, is there a way I can create a postmaster account? I would prefer not to go thru a manual uninstall of Exchange 2000. Thanks in advance!!
