SBS 2003 remove second storage groups

kirk_lesser asked
Last Modified: 2012-05-09
So I inherited an SBS server from an IT guy that disappeared. For whatever reason, there are two Administrative groups. One is: Exchange Administrative Group with Server2. Nothing is on it. The other is first administrative group with a server named Server and it has all of the mailboxes.

I have removed storage groups before in regular Exchange 2003, but this is the first (and hopefully) last time I have seen it on SBS 2003. Are there any precautions on doing the operations on it? The backup software (Retrospect) sees only one storage group, which just happens to be the one with nothing on it, so I am riding a fine line if something goes wrong.
