Remove-CsTrustedApplication

I have a client that had OCS 2007 R@ and Lync 2010 side by side.  All elements of the OCS pool were disabled except for a Trusted Application Server.  The pool was then removed.

Now in topology builder, it still shows the server under the BackSite and I cannot remove it.  If I  try from the Lync PS, I get:
Remove-CsTrustedApplication : Cannot add, remove, or modify applications on a legacy trusted application pool. Use the legacy tools to modify the applications, then run Merge-CsTopology.

How can I remove this now?

What you can do is export out your topology to xml ( get-cstopology -AsXML | Out-File c:\topo.xml ).  This will dump it all into a readable xml format. In there you should be able to find the trusted application information.  Update the xml file and remove the trusted application information and then do a publish-cstopology -filename c:\topo.xml.

Now before you do this, you should be careful to make a backup of the topology file (the one from above) so that you can re-publish if you were to screw something up big time.  You should also make a backup of your config by running the export command I detail below.

Random Background Info - this doesn't specifically apply to what you are asking but I think it's important to note this when you start playing around with the above.

The publish-cstopology will publish the information to the CMS database, not to the local stores.  If for some reason your environment is having issues with CMS to Local Store replication in Lync, you can use an Export-CSConfiguration -FileName c:\config.zip and then an Import-CSConfiguration -FileName c:\config.zip -LocalStore to force it into the local stores database.  You shouldn't need this random info, unless replication is broken, but it's good to know about.

Thanks,

Richard

Both ways should work.
