Old Exchange 2000 Scope showing in Exchange 2007 Best practice scan

Went from Exchange 2000 to 2007 more than a year ago. Don't have any issues where this is concerned but today when playing with the Exchange 2007 Best Practices scan I noticed it still shows the old Exchange scope and old server name. How do I clean this up>

You'll probably need to use ADSIedit to remove the remaining records from AD. Here's the Technet article with the process:

After doing this:
You will not be able to delete the Recipient Update Service (Enterprise Configuration) by using Exchange 2003 or Exchange 2000 System Manager. Perform the following steps to delete the Recipient Update Service (Enterprise Configuration) by using ADSI Edit (AdsiEdit.msc):

   1. Open ADSI Edit, expand Configuration, expand CN=Configuration,CN=<domain>, expand CN=Services, expand CN=Microsoft Exchange, expand CN=<Exchange organization name>, expand CN=Address Lists Container, and then select CN=Recipient Update Services.
   2. In the result pane, right-click Recipient Update Service (Enterprise Configuration), click Delete, and then click Yes to confirm the deletion.

The Exchange 2000 server isn't available for step 4. Do I skip and go to step 5 and 6 or is there some other procedure?

Muzzi_In: Your second link doesn't work.

Everything on the 2007 server is working fine and has been, just noticed the old server is still "here". I take it we didn't finish the decomish correctly when we rolled out 2007?
Using ADSIEdit console, you can simply remove the old exchange entry after taking system state backup of your GC. I would still recommend to let your OLD Administrative Group to remain as it is linked to a number of attributes in AD.
