removing last exchange server 2003 after migrating to exchnage 2010

Posted on 2010-08-29

I am wanting to remove my exchnage 2003 server and I need to remove the bridgehead connector on the 2003 server so I can uninstall Exchange. Everything else appears to be moved.
I am unable to edit this on Exchange 2003 as it wants Exchnage Manager v8 or above. I can see the settings but unable to make any changes.

Any ideas how I can do this?

Thanks Mohammed that last link really helps as it explains the cmdlet better than the MS article (or I understood it better than the MS article).
