Hi
when we came to uninstall Exchange 2003 via add&remove sbs2003, the uninstall appeared to fail - exchange services still running in services list, and an Exchange option in the uninstall menu still showing with "none or upgrade" options and mentioned Exchange 2000? I have since completed a manual uninstall of Exchange 2003 using the MS instructions - stopping Exchange services and removing list of registry keys, (we did not carry out the uninstall of IIS) - how can we tell if exchange 2003 has been successfully uninstalled and be sure that it is safe to proceed with the migration to demote the sbs2003 box?
