How do I remove an inactive server from Exchange System Manager
Posted on 2011-05-01
I am in the middle of an Exchange 2000 > 2010 upgrade project, and am getting there slowly but surely!
Today I managed to upgrade from Exchange 2000 to 2003 suceesfully, and installed Service Pack 2. Outlook & Outlook Web Access are working well and I've tested all connectivity options (hoping to set up full iPhone/mobile integration next week).
As part of the upgrade, I have run the 2010 pre-requisites check and there only seems to be one obstable in the way.
When I first joined my current company, I noticed that there was an inactive server listed in Exchange System Manager. I didnt need to remove it at the time, so didnt really think about it. Now I need to remove it to continue with the upgrade.
Currently, we have our Exchange 2003 server listed (and working) and the inactive Exchange 2000 server.
I've tried right-clicking and deleting but nothing seems to work.
Has anyone come across this scenario, or knows a way to remove this inactive server so I can get Exchange 2010 installed.
I look forward to your comments.
Thanks in advance!
