You cant do that. Once you will disjoin your Exchange server from the domain, everything will be broken.
Exchange server's Computer account plays a vital role in Exchange's functionality.

What exactly the issue is? and why you want to disjoin and rejoin your Exchange server computer from the domain?

Thanks,

Check the application log for all errors you get when you try to start the System Attendant Service.

Go to your Active Directory Users & computers - Users container - "Exchange Domain Servers" group
and check the members tab. - Check if your Exchange server computer account is the member of this group, if not, You will have to manually add your new Exchange server computer account in it.

try to start the service again and if it fails again, check the Application log.

maybe you can try resetting the computer account in the domain and then try to connect it back to the domain.

Your event ids indicate that there is some problem in with ur netlogon service , and this happens when u remove a client from microsoft networks , as u have mentioned above ,

Follow the article below as microsoft has suggested some registry editing for this problem .

This would solve ur problem .
