Last summer I installed exchange 2010 on our network and moved the exchange role from an sbs2003 server.  The migration went smooth and I gracefully removed exchange via add/remove programs.  I'm trying to install exchange 2010 on another server and it's telling me that one or more servers is running exchange 2003 without service pack 2.  Well we no longer have exchange 2003 so wth.  All post say yea just reinstall sp2 - but obviously the server does exist.

Fixed it.   Run adsiedit - configuration - services - microsoft exchange - cn%org% - cn=administrative groups - there was still an instance of the "first storage group".  Deleted that and install went fine.
