Remove Exchange From 2003 SBS Server

Last Modified: 2012-08-13

I have a SBS 2003 domain controller that is on the fritz. I would like to demote it and reformat it. However, I used to run exchange from this server before I started hosting with another company (we have bad power) and I dont want to leave any exchange info in AD.

I tried to uninstall exchange, but there is no remove option in add\remove programs. And I do not have the installation disk anymore...

What will happen if I do not remove exchange? Will it effect the AD?
