We recently got rid of an old Exchange (2003) server which was hosed.  There was a routing group set up between the old Exchange server and the other Exchange 2003 server in our organization.  I now see the following error in the Event Log of the Exchange server

Event Type:      Warning
Event Source:      MSExchangeTransport
Event Category:      Routing Engine/Service
Event ID:      958
Date:            1/22/2013
Time:            8:01:37 AM
User:            N/A
Computer:      Current Exchange Server
Description:
Following master server DN appears to be pointing to a deleted object. This may prevent Exchange Routing Service from functioning properly. Please check your DS setting. <CN=Old Exchange Server\0ADEL:ffcc9621-042d-4dd0-918c-a83f9c9f78d8,CN=Servers,CN=DOMAIN,CN=Administrative Groups,CN=Organization name,CN=Microsoft Exchange,CN=Services,CN=Configuration,DC=mydomain,DC=com>

How do I delete the object referenced above so that this error goes away?

Thanks!

Do you have any routing group connectors in place?

get-routinggroupconnector

Was the Exchange 2003 server removed correctly? The installer shouldn't have let you uninstall with routing information in place.

We have routing group connectors in place.  The Exchange 2003 server was not removed correctly because the server died so there was no way to uninstall.

You need to remove the routing group connectors.

get-routinggroupconnector | remove-routinggroupconnector

As that is the cause of some of the problems. Have you done any cleanup of the Exchange environment to account for the removal of the server? One option if nothing has been done would be to recover the Exchange 2003 server (using a new installation of Windows) so the migration can be completed correctly.

I've removed the connectors using the command you listed above.  Error messages have disappeared.

Thanks!
