Uninstall of Exchange Virtual Server fails with network path not found

I'm attempting un-install an Exchange 2003 from an cluster.  I take the System Attendant Resource Offline.  Then I select "Remove Exchange Virtual Server" I recieve the following error message:
The network path was not found.

Sorry, this is not what i'm looking for. Thanks, anyone out there! that can help me?
I had the same problem. I ended up changing the network binding order on the node (Network Connections | Advanced | Advanced Settings). Make your LAN first and your HEARTBEAT second. This resolved the issue. I was able to stop the system attendand (SA) resource and was then able to remove the virtual server.
