Hello

setup: migration from exchange 2003 to 2010 done and running fine for several weeks.
on old server 2003 running Exchange 2003 un-install failed ( as usual) so manual cleanup required.

All i have left is this entry in ADSI  ( on the server 2008)
at present ADSI has:
CN=Exchange Administrative Group (FYDIB0......   <-present working Exchange 2010
CN=First Administrative Group     <-old exchange 2003

Can I simply delete the whole container for CN=First Administrative Group
or only the server reference in it?

Thank you

You can leave it as it is so that if anytime required you can get the Legacy server and it doesnt causes any issues

If an upgrade to the next flavour of Exchange occurs in the future won't it find this old legacy server in the AD?

No sir lets say someone deletes this AG this cant ever revert back as there will be no such info or instance left so this doesnt harms and it can be safely left ..... If you have concerns run EXBPA and ensure all is good
