removing the sbs2003 from domain after migration to sbs2008

Could somone please help, I have got into a real mess and cannot get any further.

Wee have migrated an sbs2003 server to sbs2008. We cannot move the ofline addressbook as we are told V4 is installed and we should install an update. I tried this but we were told it needed to be checked, or something like that.

Do we need the offline address bok, as it would seem that SBS2008 has its own, but we still get the error in outlook 2003, whenever wy send / receive - Microsoft Exchange Server reported an error 0x8004010f.

I want to remove the old sbs2003 server and we run add / remove microsoft exchange server abd try to remove exchange, we are told that we can't do that either as ther are bridgheads in place between the sbs2008 and sbs2003 servers. Can I just remove them? I can see the one in sbs2003, but can't find any reference in SBS2008.

I seem to be going round in circles. Can any kind person give me any assistance here Please.

See if you can move it using powershell:

You could also just use these procedures to fix:

Yes, remove all bridgeheads in Exchange 2003.

An extract from your document states :-

In Exchange Management Console, expand Server Configuration, and then click Mailbox.
In the Database Management window, right-click Properties on the mailbox store.
Click the Client Settings tab, click Browse, and then click the appropriate offline address book.
Click OK two times.

However, the default offline address book is already shown there with no option to browse anywhere else.

Any ideas?
