Remove an Server out of Exchange 2007 Organization

Good Day

I need some help to remove a server which is not part of my organization anymore out of the organization. I have an Exchange 2007 server on Server 2003 R2 x64 (CONTOSO-JHB) as my Primary DC and Exchange 2010 server on Server 2008 R2 (COM-DC1) as an Additional DC and future PDC.

I am in the process of moving from Windows 2003 to 2007 and from Exchange 2007 to 2010, I havce installed a previous Windows 2008 R2 witrh Exchange 2007, but encountered compatibility issues with Exchange 2007 on 2008 R2, so now I have to remove the server which i have formatted due to unablt to uninstall. The server that I want to remove is called (JHB-DC).

Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

You need to use ADSIEdit to remove this server from AD since the server has been formatted

Delete the container for JHB-DC
