Dear All,

I have windows 2008 AD; OCS 2007 R2 was installed in the environment. For unknown reasons, OCS server formatted and removed from the environment one year back. Now, I’m looking for a way to clean up the AD from all OCS data, I’m looking for a way to remove everything related to OCS so if I need to install it again, I have to do it from scratch, how I can do that?

Thanks

Unfortunately you can't completely remove everything.  the reason for that is that OCS requires a schema extension and you can't remove those once the schema is extended

You can deactivate schema extensions  http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc961741.aspx

...but can't completely remove them

Thanks
