I have a customer that has a 2003 server standard running Microsoft Exchange 2003.
The server has to continually be rebooted because the Exchange services will not start.
The active directory needs to be rebuilt on the server or taken away altogether.
There is a primary domain controller at the site so we could get by with the primary domain controller.
What is the impact or how would I demote the bdc to a member server and keep the existing Exchange 2003 intact?
The other challenge we have is if we have to re-install Exchange 2003 how do we get the license key off the server?
What is the best way to demote the bdc to a member server and maintain Exchange 2003?
Is it even possible to do this? Should I just build another server and install Exchange then convert the data to the new Exchange?
I will leave today at 4pm EST and will not be back in the office until around 8am on Monday.
