This seems to be a fairly classic problem, but having virtually completed my migration from SBS 2003 to SBS 2008 I am unable to uninstall Exchange due to the following error:

Setup encountered an error while checking prerequisites for the component "Microsoft Exchange":
0x80072030 (8240): There is no such object on the server.


I have checked out http://support.microsoft.com/kb/283089 and other related  articles.
The only mailbox reported by ADUC advanced find for "ExchangeHomeServer ends with [SBS2003 servername]" is a SystemMailbox{60655F04-E77B-4EE0-BE51-4CF36A14A042} which I gather shouldn't cause problems but sometimes does.

Can someone talk me through what I should do next?

Philip Elder, one of the other SBS MVPs has published an excellent migration guide with details on a number of steps that may be causing your exchange issues...I would print out the page and review each and every item to see if you might have missed something

Thanks Shree for that link. Following the article's link to http://support.microsoft.com/kb/833396 allowed me to hack my way through the registry and complete the migration. Old server is now off and new one doesn't seem to have thrown a fit yet!

Thanks also for the other link - a useful extra resource which I wish I'd had earlier in the process.
