only remove the server object from active directory using ADSIEdit , not all exchange configuration, as this will affect all the entire organization and not recoverable

Do as msabry06 said if you'd only need to remove one exchange server from AD.

@msabry06,
i thought he is going to remove exchange organisation alltogether, and start from scratch as quoted
"i crated a MS exchage server 2010, due to some issues i try to uninstall but unable to unistall due to some errors...."
