Hello

i have installed exchange 2010 on a virtual machine, and it was connected to the domain and found the users and it semed to work fine until we crashed it. So i decided to start all over and reinstall windows and install exchange again. However now after i have installed the exchange server, it seems that it has found our old exchange 2010 on the list, and keeps prompting me for produkt key (which i didn't type in until i was finished with configuring it), and whatever i do in the console, i can see the new exchange server AND the old exchange server on the list.

how do i get rid of the old exchange server from the list? i thougt since i reinstalled the whole machine, it must be getting the info from the AD, i looked in there under "computers" and found the server and deleted it. But it still appears in exchange console on the list of servers..

From your exchange server run adsiedit.msc

Right click on ADSI Edit and connect to -> in place of "Default Naming Context" select configuration  and click OK

Expand configuration -> Sevices -> MS Exchange -> Org name -> admin groups -> Exchange admin group (blablabalb) -> servers

find the OLD server and DELETE it

make sure to delete only the old one
