Cannot decommision exchange 2003 after transitioning to exchange 2007
Posted on 2009-05-14
The first time I attempted to uninstall exchange 2003, an error message pops up on the Exchange Messaging and Collaboration Services:
The service did not respond to the start or control request in a timely fashion.
The second time:
The service cannot accept control messages at this time.
The third time:
There is no such object on the server.
There are still components on the server. Do I just need to manually remove the data now from active directory since it does not look im going to get a clean uninstall? If so, what are the appropriate steps?
