Cannot disable send connector under hub transport

We had an exchange 2003 server which is now decommissioned.  Exchange is still installed but no exchange services are running on it.  We are running a new Exchange 2007 server.  Event viewer shows event id 5016 "Could not discover route to [old exchange 2003 server]".

On Exchange 2007 server, I select  hub transport then the send connectors tab.  There is an entry entitled "router to [old exchange 2003 server]".  It is routing mail through smart host [new exchange 2007 server]. However, source server is [old exchange 2003 server].  I am guessing that this entry is causing the event viewer error.

I tried to disable this entry and received the following error.

Action 'Disable' could not be performed on object 'router to exchange'.

router to exchange
Failed
Error:
Property Enabled cannot be set on this object because it requires the object to have version 0.1 (8.0.535.0) or later. Current version of the object is 0.0 (6.5.6500.0).

I want to disable this entry rather than outright removing it because I want to monitor the effects that is has, if any, on mail flow.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

You will need to disable this object through the Exchange 2003 System Manager console on the old Exchange 2003 server.

Thanks.  I found the object but don't see the option to disable it, only to delete it.  Any ideas?

If you are no longer going to be using this server, or Exchange 2003, it is safe to delete.

Just to confirm, by deleting these entries on the exchange 2003 server they are then deleted on the exchange 2007 server?  How does the exchange 2007 server know about these entries if all exchange services are turned off on the exchange 2003 server?   Thanks.

Becuase they are a part of the same Exchange Organization, there are entries in Active Directory that point each app to that.  You will want to use the Exchange 2003 System Manager to delete that entry on both servers.  The EX2003 and EX 2007 server.
