Fail to uninstall Exchange 2003 is Windows SBS 2003

Hi, i have successful migrate my SBS 2003 to SBS 2007. Mail flow and public folder are alright with internal and external mail.

When i try to uninstall the exchange server 2003 in add/remove program, i have the error
"Setup Encountered an error while checking prerequisites for the component "Microsoft Exchange" 0X80072030 (8240). There is no such object on the server

Under ESM, when i click Recipients, i will see

There are no such object in the server. Facility: LDAP provider ID no:80072030 Exchange System Manager

i was wondering if i have made a mistake during the preparing for the Exchange 2003 installation. i am not too sure if the below mistake has cause this

base on the guide here

http://www.petri.co.il/decommission-exchange-2003-servers-exchange-2007-upgrade.htm

There is one part where i deleted the Recipient Update Service using ADSIEDIT tool.
it was only after i deleted it,  then i realize i need to reassign the Recipient Update Service to the new Exchange 2007.

What is the work around or is there a way i can recreate a new Recipient Update Service to solve this problem?

The main objective is to remove the exchange server 2003.  Can i use below method to manually remove the exchange 2003? My environment is Small business 2003 & Small Business 2007

Have you removed the the recipient policy and created a new one?  The ones created in Exchange 2003 won't work in 2007 so you will need to delete it.

Exchange 2007 doesn't use the RUS.

You dont need RUS at all and it should not hamper whil removeing Exchange 2003

Follow this article and remove the Exchange 2003 manually.

Does this method also work for small business edition exchange 2003? i saw the edition support never indicate SBS. And the cause may not be due to RUS, Anyone encountered this before and resolved this problem using other method?

This is the guide you need to follow: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb288905(EXCHG.80).aspx

it's exactly the same for SBS.

You may also want to look at the later parts of this guide from EE member MPECSinc: http://blog.mpecsinc.ca/2009/06/sbs-2003-to-sbs-2008-migration-guide.html

The technet article i poste is for removing the last legacy Exchange server which if your migrating is the correct method as it covers all the items that need to be re-homed.

The migration document I posted I have personally used on several occasions 100% sucessfully as have other EE experts.

The Microsoft article explains how to remove exchange from your server it does not take into account the other steps needed as part of a migration and is therefore not the correct document for the procedure require to complete the task the author is undertaking!!
