One of our clients asked us to remove an old server reference (COMMSERVER) from System Manager, this server was an Exchange 5.5 box.  I used ADSI edit to remove the reference from the Configuration\Services\Microsoft Exchange\CN=Wilberforce Chambers\Administrative Groups\CN=New Square\Servers\  container.  however this has caused the following errors to be logged which are filling the event logs up.
