delete RUS from exchange 2003 in order to decommission


I am decommissioning a 2003 exchange server. It was powered off for about 2 weeks and there were no issues with the 2010 servers.

Can I just delete the RUS entries rather than redirecting to one of the 2010 servers?

Yes, just remove them.  It is part of the exchange 2003 to 2010 guide when decomissioning the exchange 2003 server.

thanks. I do realize that I need to remove them but a couple of guides I referenced stated to redirect to another exchange server while others stated delete them. Domain from ESM and enterprise from adsiedit (although I guess they could both be deleted from adsi). Since they are no longer needed I thought delete would be more efficient than redirect.

thanks again

RUS is no more required in 2010, so you need to remove it. Follow this

Read Remove Exchange server section.

You will only be able to deleted RUS from the ESM. For the Enterprise RUS it is required to use ADSIEdit to remove the entry.
