Exchange 2003 Uninstall
Posted on 2011-10-26
I have migrated all of my users and public folders from Exchange 2003 to Exchange 2010 (As directed by the Exchange Server 2010 Deployment Assistant), however when I try to uninstall Exchange 2003, I get a message that states:
The component "Microsoft Exchange Messaging and Collaboration Services" cannot be assigned the action "Remove" because:
-This server is the Recipient Update Server for the domain acme.com. You cannot uninstall this server until you select a different Recipient Update Server for this domain.
-You cannot remove a server that is a target bridgehead for a routing group connector. This server is a target bridgehead for the following connectors: <Ex2010-Ex2003>
Given that, my questions are: 1) how exactly can I select a different recipient update server for the domain, and 2) how can I make the new Ex2010 the target bridgehead server? (I tried removing that routing connector from both Ex2010 and Ex2003, but yet this problem persists)
