Force remove exchange 2010 edge server
Posted on 2013-01-22
I have an exchange 2010 edge server role that was coexisted with tmg on the same box. I dont know how this happened but the setup is so messed up and I am trying to forcefully remove the edge server.
I have tried some works arounds (deleted registry) and now when I try to uninstall using add and remove program , I get this:
Summary: 1 item(s). 0 succeeded, 1 failed.
Elapsed time: 00:00:05
Edge Transport Role Prerequisites
There was a problem accessing the registry on this computer. This may happen if the Remote Registry service is not running. It may also indicate a network problem or that the TCP/IP Netbios Helper service is not running.

looks like i can no longer remove this role the normal way, I need a way to remove it completely from the exchange organisation. My domain controller is on server 2003 r2
