when i expand default-first-site-name -> servers -> there is a domain controller that has been demoted and is no longer apart of our domain.  when i expand the properties of the old domain controller there is a folder listed called 'exchange settings.' when i click on 'exchange settings' in the right pane i see 'active directory connector (servername)' listed. if the server is no longer apart of our domain and has been demoted is it safe to just right - click and remove the server from active directory sites & services ?  this may be an odd question, but i wasn't around when that domain controller was online so i am not familiar with its properties, etc.  any insight would be greatly appreciated.

If your sure it's no longer a part of your domain there is no problem just to right click > remove

Take a systemstate backup just in case before you remove it :)

I don't have remove as an option, only move? Do you have to be an enterprise admin to perform this task. I'm only a domain admin.
