I have a MSEXCH2003 server on my network. A while ago I installed a 2010 Exchange server to test and ultimately transfer the 2003 Exch to. This exchange server now appears in the ESM in a separate admin group.

I lost this test server a while ago and will not be able to remove it gracefully from AD.

What is the best way for me to remove all trace of this 2010 Exchange server? I do plan to install another 2010 Exchange with a different name.

You will have to use ADSI Edit to get it out of Active directory.

CN=servername,CN=Servers,CN=Adminstrative Group, CN=Domain Name, CN=Microsoft Exchange, CN=Services, CN=configuration, DN=Configuration.
