Exchange 2010 Setup Recover

Hi,

I have 3 CAS/HUB roles with two Mailbox roles in my Exchange 2010 deployment. Up until a few days ago, everything was fine (post SP1 install too). And now, I'm seeing error messages on one of the CAS/HUB servers. OWA was not behaving, it had multiple errors while attempting to delete messages, etc.

After some digging, I decided to remove that host from the HLB, and now everything seems to be fine. I've determined that I'm beyond the normal troubleshooting steps so, I want to decommission that particular CAS/HUB Windows VM, and re-create it.

Would I need to first uninstall the roles on that host before re-creating it? Just wondering what the proper procedure should be since, I've not had the need to do this before.

Thanks.

To clarify, you should uninstall the roles before recreating it.
