Exchange Mgmt Console/ EMS acting up after removing an old Exchange from network!

Hi All,
I removed an old Exchange 2003 from an old Windows SBS 2003 today. Ever since my Exchange management console is acting up. I have the feeling I did not remove all traces of old exchange.

When I click on Organization Configuration -> Federation Trust and / or Organization relationship I get weird errors (see attached photos). Up until five minutes ago I didnt see any mailboxes in the recepient config -> mailbox folder.

Something is acting up. How can I test my Exchange if it is working properly and listing to the right AD and server?

I can send and receive emails just fine. I can access OWA, and IMAP.

I followed the steps in the following doc on how to remove old exchange and old DC. I did get errors while removing/ uninstalling the Exch 2003 but I think eventually it was out.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
