how to disable event logs sbs2003


we have recently moved to hosted exchange but as we have sbs2003 we have been unable to remove exchange 2003 from the server, as a work around we have disabled the exchange services.  the problem is we are now receiving hundreds of event application errors every minute:  mainly Server ActiveSync event 3005

is there a way we can stop the event logs for this?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Probably the activesync message is comming from IIS.

The best option should be to manual remove Exchange, this will clean up your AD so it will also give no troubles in the future.

Thanks for reply.

We were told by the hosting company that Exchange cannot be removed from SBS2003?
Did you try is the clean way?

You can just go to control panel, add/remove programs and then select windows small business server and choose change, follow the wizard and change the value in front of exchange to uninstall.

If this will not work then try to remove exchange manual

IF you run the add/remove programs change/remove options, you should be able to remove exchange.  I don't have any 2003 SBS machine running that I can look at, but I seem to recall, you need to put the parent part, in modify. before you can choose remove. It's been a while but I seem to recall doing a remove/reinstall in the past. I'm not positive it was an SBServer but explorer the change/remove options. you'll need the sbs2003 disk2 or DVD to repair or remove exchange most likely.

If you mean that the hosting company is telling you that you "Should Not" remove exchange, that's a different issue. Because you "can".  If there is a technical reason they don't want you to remove it. they should be able to help you sort out the errors.
