Exchange 2010 Transport Role in a DAG

I have an Exchange 2010 Server that I am unable to remove the Transport role from.  When I runn the setup program all of the choices to add/remove the roles are dimmed out.  I can not find anything on the web or in the EE knowledge base that addresses this.  Does anyone know why the choices are dimmed out and if thewre is another way to remove this role befor I create a DAG with this server in the group.

This is a 2008 R2 Server with Exchange 2010 installed with one Store dtabase with an SSL installed.  For OWA.

Thanks

When you go to Programs and Features and select change from there with Exchange 2010 highlighted what happens?

Also try Setup.com /mode:Uninstall /role:HT from a command prompt

In prograns and features when I bring up the window and choose the change option all of the roles are dimmed and I cannot uncheck the X.
When I run the command you gave me above it goes throught the prerequisite check and then puts a text message up but the window cloes before I can read what it says.  Is there a switch that will pause the window or output the text before it closes?
Thanks

if you open a command prompt and run the command from there it will not close the command prompt.

It shouldn't do.

Just do double check you are clicking Start > Run > type CMD and click OK

Then from the new window that opens you run the command I posted above?

 This computer is configured as a source transport server for 2 connector(s) in t
he organization. These must be moved or deleted before Setup can continue.
 
This gives an explantion that it is configures as a source server.  How do I move that to the new hub server?

Using the Exchange Management Console under Organisation Configuration > Hub Transport, check under Send Connectors and the properties of any send connector listed.

There will be a source server tab, check the server you want to remove the role from is not listed in the source server tab for any send connector
