I was running BPA on an Exchange 2003 server that used to be an Exchange 5.5 but was not upgraded correcly ;  I get this error in BPA Legacy domain present in native mode group and the resolution is to use LPR or ADSIedit and remove the native mode administrative group. I need  to do this because I plan to upgrade to Exchange 2007 but can someone tell me ways to restore the old configuration if I made a typo or it just should'nt be modified the way I was instructed?

Take a system state backup prior to making any change in ADSIEDIT.MSC so that you will have something to fall back on.
