Removing exchange 2003 Server

Hi folks,

We have arlready migrated to exchange 2010 and we are in the process to removed the old e2k03 servers. I have already removed the e2k03 back0end server and now I am trying to remove the e2k03 front-end server but I am receiving this error :
[21:16:49] Setup encountered an error while checking prerequisites for the component "Microsoft Exchange":
0X8007202B (8235): A referral was returned from the server.
[21:23:18]  CComBOIFacesFactory::QueryInterface (f:\titanium\admin\src\udog\bo\bofactory.cxx:54)Error code 0X80004002 (16386): No interface.
The public folder, database, replica are already removed.
Any idea about the error will be apreciated!

Thk,
Libet

Looks like active directory related... Are you using schema admin account to remove exchange ? it needs that privilege.

Perform a system state backup and follow a manual removal of Exchange 2003
