Can I rebuild all System Folders?

Hi,

We recently upgraded our exchange server to 2003 from 2000 using the swing method.

However, our original server was not removed from the organization correctly before it was formatted and rebuilt.
So now we have problems with RUS and Offline Address Book. They seem to be still looking for the orignal server since it was never removed properly.

I have gone through all the steps of adding the new server and removing the old from the replication lists for each system folder but it still seems to be looking for the old server...

Is there anyway to completly rebuild the exchange organization so there are no mentions of the old server anywhere?

Thanks in advance

I have had a few people do that.
Make sure that you have changed everything, not just the system folders but the references to the other servers. People miss the settings in Recipients to change the location of the things.

Attempt to do as much of this as you can: http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?kbid=307917

Leave the server for about an hour, then reboot it.
