I am setting up a test network with exchange 2007. The information store became corrupted and so I removed the old copy and began to reinstall, this time giving the server name a different name (as I miss-typed the old server name). Upon reinstallation, I saw the old servername and the new one in the exchange console. This confused AD and account and a number of other things so I decided to wipe out the server, reinstall windows server 2008 and reinstall exchange 2007...but there it is again!
I don't understand how the wiping out of a server and reinstall can keep the old exchange configuration in there? Sure you cant do anything but I have to change many of the configs to the current server name and now I cant get exchange working at all.
Is there some AD schema objects being recalled or something? I dont understand!
