How I do uninstall Exchange 2003 from 1 of 2 servers?
Posted on 2006-11-21
I have a brand new 2003 domain in mixed mode running two Exchange 2003 servers in native mode (both of which are DC's). I want to uninsall Exchange from one of the two servers and leave it running on the other. I have already moved all remaining mailboxes off of the Exchange server that I'd like to take Exchange off of and I've verified that the Exchange server that is staying in place is the "routing" server for the group. Every time I try to delete a store or uninstall Exchange from the original CD or Add/Remove Programs it get messages telling me that it can't because their are still mailboxes on the server or something similiar. What is the correct process of taking Exchange 2003 off of a server when it's not the last Exchange server in your network? The Search on MS' Support Site doesn't seem to be working today either. :(
