Demoting a Domain Controller installed Exchange 2003 (just installed not running) and install it on another server
Posted on 2008-10-27
I have Exchange 2003 installed on Standard Server 2003. It works as secondary domain controller. But we are not using this Exchange yet, still we are running on our old Email server (i.e. MDeamon on another box). Now I realised that server is not fast enough to run exchange on it that is why we bought new box to run exchange and use it as secondary controller.
I have setup new server as secondary controller. Now I need to demote that old server from directory and uninstall exchange and install it on new server. I don't need to backup anything from that installed exchange server as I am going to do fresh install on new server.
Can you please advise me steps to do so?
Thanks in advance.
Please keep in mind that I am programmer with little knowledge of Network. I have tried to search on google and on EE too but couldn't find any simple steps, so please advise me simple steps.
Please feel free to ask me more about setup.
