Exchange 2007

When I run Get-ExchangeServer from the PowerShell, it lists two servers: 1) the old exchange 2003 server and 2) the new exchange 2007 server.
The old exchange server 2003 is long gone and the machine no longer is in operation.  Exchange 2007 seems to be working just fine.
How do I remove the old server from AD and From Exchange 2007.

As I stated, I no longer have an Exchange 2003 server machine.  Everything is migrated correctly, except there is an instance of Exchange 2003 server that still remains somewhere in AD.  Here is the result after running Get-ExchangeServer from the PowerShell:

You have to clean up the ADSI entry for the old server using ADSIEdit. http://support.microsoft.com/kb/833396 has more info under "Remove the Exchange Server 2003 server from Active Directory"

To remove Exchange 2003 from ADSIEDIT.
Run ADSIEDIT.MSC.
GOTO: Configuration Container:
Configuration -- Services -- Microsoft Exchange -- ORG -- Administrative Group -- First Administrative Group --Servers (Delete the server which doesnot exist)
NOTE : Please do not delete your organization name object i.e. First Administrative Group.
