Deleted incorrect Recipient Update Service Container

xav1963 used Ask the Experts™
In following instructions of migrating from SBS 2003 to SBS 2011, I was suppose to use ADSI to do the following -

"The Recipient Update Service is not used in Exchange 2010 and is therefore not required, so it can be removed. To do this you will need to use ADSI Edit. This can be done by using the following procedure:
 1.Click Start > Run > MMC > Click OK
 2.Select File then Add/Remove Snap-in
 3.Click Add and select ADSI Edit and click Add, then close and OK
 4.Right click on the ADSI Edit and select ‘Connect to’. From the drop down under ‘Select a well known Naming Context’, select Configuration and click OK
 5.Expand Configuration > Services > Microsoft Exchange > Organisation Name > Address List Container > Recipient Update Services
Right click on Recipient Update Service (Enterprise Configuration) and select Delete. There may also be a Recipient Update Service (ORGNAME) this also needs to be deleted
Only delete the Recipient Update Service entries under the container; DO NOT delete the container itself or any other entries."

Well, I did delete the container instead of the actual item... Now I can't uninstall the Exchange 2003. How can i fix or rebuild this? Thx..
