How do I remove a CAS server that crashed from AD.  I deleted the computer object, but it still shows up in exchange management shell.  I would like to deploy another CAS with the same name so that I can continue to use our current certificate.

After deleting the machine in AD. You can setup a new one with the same name and then perform a Setup.com /M:RecoverServer

Are you trying to install it on the same machine as before? Because this would be a factor. The hardware and OS needs to be the same to do the Setup.com /M:RecoverServer

Otherwise you will need to physically remove it from the old server:

Yesterday I created another cas with the same name as the original.  That's when I got the error msgs, so I renamed it and put it in a workgroup.  Will that effect the recover function?

The original was a vmware virtual machine.  I accidentally formatted it.  So, no way I can get to it.  The new one will be a hyper-v virtual machine.

When I ran the Get-OwaVirtualDirectory cmdlet, I got a error stating missing -depth parameter. I can run the cmdlet without the -depth but I don't know if I'll be missing anything essential.

Rename it back to the original name, and just ensure that you have the same OS installed on the machine and the same hardware specs. Put it back on the domain and then do the recoverserver which will restore it from AD so all settings will still be in tact.
