windows 2008 R2.
Exchange 2010.

I tried installing exchange on a server - now i want to remove it to put it on a different box and keep that server as a DC.

I cannot uinstall exchange. I get errors when i tried to install it.
screenshots:
1) errors created when trying to uninstall it
2) console cannot open (to troubleshoot suggestions provided step 1) - it stays on that screen
3) screenshot of exchange services running

any tool out there? I want to completely remove it from my DC. Reformatting not an option anymore.

Are your corporate email signatures appalling?

Is it scary how unprofessional your email signatures look? Do users create their own terrible designs and give themselves stupid job titles? You can make this a lot easier for yourself by choosing an email signature management solution from Exclaimer today.
