Hello, I'm in the transition process from Exchange 2007 to Exchange 2010. I about to finish, all mailboxes are working ok in Ex2010, server roles have been removed from old Ex07 server. Now I want to completely remove Ex07 by uninstalling the management tools and exchange files though, I get this error:

The operation could not be performed because object 'SERVERNAME' could not be found on domain controller 'DC.domain.local'

Can you help me?

Thank you!

Microsoft's recommend mode of uninstalling exchange:
Put exchange DVD
Setup.com /mode:uninstall

Did you move PF replicas / mailboxes / server roles and test if it's working from 2010 ?

Thank you.

Yes, PF replicas / mailboxes / server roles and test if it's working from 2010  are all removed. My Ex2010 server is working.  In Ex07 it's only the Unified Messaging Server Role and the Management Tools.

When I do : Setup.com /mode:uninstall  it throws the same error.
