Exchange 2000 removal
Posted on 2013-05-24
I have a server 2003 standard with the ghost of MS Exchange server 2000 on it preventing me from installing another version of it on another server in my farm.
The problem is, there is no uninstall option, it is not listed in the programs, there is no folder on the drive array containing it. I feel it's buried in the registry. I removed the one item I found in the AD but that didn't appear to work.
How can I completely eradicate this Exchange installation so I can move forward?
I thought of doing a fresh install of exchange 2000 THEN uninstalling it, but cannot get my hands on the software.
