Hi Experts,
 
  I have a single windows 2000 server running as a DC, Exchange 2000 is installed on the same server, I installed a new server running windows 2003 server and installed Exchange 2003 server, I moved the mailbox' from the old one to the new one without any problems, now I want to remove the old Exchange 2000 from the DC, I have changed the RUS to point to the new one, but each time i try to uninstall the old exchange im getting some errors like( unable to remove the exchange component .. Site replication service 0xc0070424 and it failed, I want to know how to force the uninstallation and remove the old one.
Please help
also I want to know if im missing anything because the new exchange stopped one time and i had to restart to to work.


Thanks

Please do the following before removing exchange 2000

1) Move the roles
2) Remove the database (storage group and mailbox store )

SRS is a component required for Exchange 5.5 integration. Try removing that as separate item. You could also try reinstalling Exchange 2000 on top and then removing it again. Trying to remove Exchange manually is something usually to be avoided.
