Exchange 2003 server removal from domain that also has SBS 2003.
Posted on 2013-01-22
I have inherited yet another grand network to fix. For starters neither of these servers are hosting the email anymore. Everyone is off to Office 365. What I need is the correct way to remove the Exchange Server (2003 R2 EE) from the domain first. I don't want to just shut it off, I want to make sure it is removed from AD and everything.
As a reminder they also have a SBS2003 as the main DC, DNS, DHCP and also has Exchange Services running on it but its not doing anything (Why this is I have not a clue). I dont know if this would make a difference but wanted to put that in there. Once I remove the 2003R2 Exchange server then I can proceed to migrating the old SBS off the domain.
