Remove Accidental Installation of Second Exchange Server

During an installation of BES Express, an admin installed Exchange Server 2003 instead of just installing ESM.  I now see the server in my administrative group under ESM and need to remove it.  I am wondering if simply uninstalling the second Exchange installation will remove all AD information that was added or if there is something else I need to consider.  There are no mailboxes on the second installation.

You should be fine to just uninstall it since it was not configured.

PS. Remember not to un-install the dependancies BES wants (such as the Exchange tools).
