Cannot uninstall Exchange from SBS 2003 - need privs?
Posted on 2013-02-07
I am trying to remove a SBS 2003 server from my network. The first step is to - of course - unistall Exchange 2003 from the SBS (Note: Exchange is not in use on any other server in the domain - we have migrated to a hosted Exchange solution). When I open Add/Remove Programs and run the Uninstall for Windows Small Business Server 2003 it complains that "You must be a member of the Domain Admins, Schema Admins, and Enterprise Admins groups".
I have been trying this from the built-in Administrator account which most certainly DOES have these privs. I tried creating a different account with the same privs. However, it then complained that I HAD to run the program from the built-in Administrator.
I tried removing and then re-adding the privs with no luck.
