Hello experts!

i am getting this error on my exchange 2010 console:

"You must provide a value for this property"

This began happening after i had a problem with having 2 exchange servers showing up and had it resolved here using ADSIEDIT:

http://www.experts-exchange.com/Software/Server_Software/Email_Servers/Exchange/Q_27406395.html

all i did was delete the old exchange server from the list in there, so i wouldn't get any message about entering product key for it or anything.

(The reason for deleting the first exchange server was because it  crashed and i reinstalled the whole OS, and installed exchange server anew, with a new computername aswell)

help?..

This could be an issue with ad replication, how many dcs do you have and on which dc did you delete the attribute for the old server in ADSI edit? you can check the status of ad replication by Running the command repadmin /showrepl

Abbasift, i did not. I am fairly new to exchange. We had a newly installed 2008 r2 installed, and installed exchange on it. Then it crashed and I formatted the server and installed exchange again.. Then.deleted the old exchange server from adsiedit. Maybe I did that wrong?

radweld: I don't have replication :)

i have looked at those, and i did the first step of installing prerequisites. However to install exchange, i have to uninstall it first.

And i can't uninstall it because now i get an error saying


    Mailbox Role Checks                                       FAILED
     Uninstall cannot continue. Database 'Mailbox Database 1660495241': This mai
lbox database contains one or more mailboxes, mailbox plans, archive mailboxes,
or arbitration mailboxes. To get a list of all mailboxes in this database, run t
he command Get-Mailbox -Database <Database ID>. To get a list of all mailbox pla
ns in this database, run the command Get-MailboxPlan. To get a list of archive m
ailboxes in this database, run the command Get-Mailbox -Database <Database ID> -
Archive. To get a list of all arbitration mailboxes in this database, run the co
mmand Get-Mailbox -Database <Database ID> -Arbitration. To disable a non-arbitra
tion mailbox so that you can delete the mailbox database, run the command Disabl
e-Mailbox <Mailbox ID>. To disable an archive mailbox so you can delete the mail
box database, run the command Disable-Mailbox <Mailbox ID> -Archive. Arbitration
 mailboxes should be moved to another server; to do this, run the command New-Mo

command Disable-Mailbox <Mailbox ID> -Arbitration -DisableLastArbitrationMailbox
Allowed to disable the arbitration mailbox. Mailbox plans should be moved to ano
ther server; to do this, run the command Set-MailboxPlan <MailboxPlan ID> -Datab
ase <Database ID>.

and i tried in the management console to remove it, but i still get the error "You must provide a value for this property".

If you don't have mailboxes in that database, Take a system state backup and remove from AD database manually using ADSI EDIT. Here you can see your databases
CN=configuration-->CN=services-->CN=Microsoft Exchange-->CN=Administrative Groups-->CN=Exchange administrative groups -->CN=Databases
