We are in mix mode with exhange 5.5 sp4 and exchange 2003 sp2 servers.  We had on the 5.5 side a site with the ims service.  On the ems side we saw it as a grayed out site.  I followed ms article on removing a site for 5.5 and I saw it replicated on the 5.5 side but when I open esm for the 2003 side it is still their.  I open the 5.5 admin on the exchange 2003 server and it is gone.  I try to use the esm to try to delete the site/administrative group and the recipient policie of that site/administrative group but it doesn't delete it.  Does anyone know how to remove the site/administrative group and the recipient policy of this site/administrative group.

It may be because of SRS replication is not working properly. But since E55 site is deleted; you can use "adsiedit" to rremove that E55 site from ESM. E55 sites are mapped directly to administrative groups

1. Launch adsiedit.msc.

2. Expand Configuration Container
CN=Services
CN=Microsoft Exchange
CN=Exchange Organization Name
CN=Administrative Groups.

3. Then select the non-function E55 site & delete.

To delete recipient policy of this site.  

1. Launch adsiedit.msc.

2. Expand Configuration Container
CN=Services
CN=Microsoft Exchange
CN=Exchange Organization Name
CN=Recipient Policies

3. Then select the recipient policy of non-function E55 site & delete.
