Heres the setup, one mail server which is setup as Basic, another server which is called Server1 and setup as Front end. Now Server1, no longer does any Exchange at all and has since moved on and is now named something else (we actually brought up another server later and named it Server1 and it does our Lotus now). So now im bringing up a new server and i want to remove Server1 from ESM. I tried to use the "Remove Server" option and i got these 2 errors:
there is no such object on the server
ID no: c103fc97
and
facility: ldap provider
ID no: 800720030

Please help me remove this old legacy server.

So should be following the last few steps on in the article which tell me to remove the server manually using ADSI edit?

To use the ADSI Edit snap-in to remove an Exchange 2003 server from an Exchange 2003 administrative group, follow these steps:

   1. Click Start, point to Programs, point to Windows 2000 Support Tools, point to Tools, and then click ADSI Edit.
   2. Expand each of the following items:
      Configuration Container
      CN=Configuration, DC=Domain_Name,DC=com
      CN=Services
      CN=Microsoft Exchange
      CN=Your_Organization_Name
      CN=Administrative Groups
      CN=Your_Administrative_Group_Name_Or_Exchange5.5_Site_Name
      CN=Servers

      Note In this procedure, Domain_Name is a placeholder for the name of your domain, Your_Organization_Name is a placeholder for the name of your organization, and Your_Administrative_Group_Name_Or_Exchange5.5_Site_Name is a placeholder for the name of your administrative group or Exchange 5.5 site.
   3. Right-click the Exchange 2003 server object, and then click Delete.
   4. Click Yes in every adsiedit dialog box that prompts you to confirm the deletion.
