Exchange 2010 decommission error

I am decommissioning some Exchange 2010 servers  for a customer & I am running into a problem decommissioning the last mailbox server. I was able to uninstall Exchange itself but I have to run uninstall a 2nd time to uninstall the Exchange Management Tools. When I do the uninstall it gives this error:

The following error was generated when "$error.Clear();
      uninstall-ExsetDataAtom -AtomName OrgLevelCt -DomainController $RoleDomainController

" was run: "An error occurred with error code '3221684226' and message 'The system cannot find the file specified.'.".

An error occurred with error code '3221684226' and message 'The system cannot find the file specified.'.

Trying to run the powershell cmdlet in the error message above it cannot find that cmdlet.

Any ideas short of opening a ticket w/ Microsoft?

Is this a Windows 2008 R2 system?
If so, reinstall the prerequisites for that version of Windows 2008 R2.

Then reboot and try again. It is looking for something - probably AD tools or RSAT.
