I am retiring a SBS2000 server. I've moved all the mailboxes over to the new SBS2003 server (new hardware), completed the transfer of roles and synced/re-homed all the necessary folders. When I turn off the old server the new server runs fine with no complaints from users.
After a couple of days it's now time to remove Exchange from the old sbs2000 server and then demote it from being a DC. However, when I try to remove Exchange 2000 using the CD, it will not let me and says I still have mailboxes on the server. The only 3 that are there are the "standard" 3 (system attendant etc.) that I can't remove.
My question is fairly simple: If I stop the Exchange services on the old box, can I simply go ahead and remove the old 2000 instance from Exchange System Manager by right-clicking on the server and chosing the "remove" option??
The old server is going to be formatted so there is no issue with needing to keep it in production or anything like that. I can do the dcpromo and demote it quickly as well, but I wanted to know if I really, really need to do the uninstall or if I can simply (and cleanly) get away with removing it from ESM.
