Two servers that were on my network have crashed and not re-built.  They have been replaced by new servers with different names.  They both ran AD.  My Exchange Server 2007 stiil looks for them and when unable to find them I get a error message in Event Viewer.  What is the best way to tell Exhange 2007(Windows 2003 Server Standard(64x) that these servers o longer exit?

If you erase them from DNS and from ESM, 95% of your problems will be solved. Don't forget to delete the reverse records and SRV records.

If they held any FSMO roles, don't forget to seize them, too.
