we have migrated to 2010 exchange server and am trying to remove our 2007 unified messaging server
when i try to remove the software i get the following error
the unified mesaging server role cannot be removed. Error this server has been designated to host the prompt publsihing point for dial plan
please move the publishing point to another location before removing this role.

i have moved the custom folder to the new 2010 server and shared it out with the correct permissions
i also tried to run the following command

Set-UMDialPlan -Identity MyDialPlan -PromptPublishingPoint <UNC_Path_to_PromptPublishingPoint_Shared_Folder_On_New_Server>

however exchange 2010 does not seem to be aware of the  -PromptPublishingPoint  command

i get the following error

A positional parameter cannot be found that accepts argument '-PromptPublishingPoint'.
    + CategoryInfo          : InvalidArgument: (:) [Set-UMDialPlan], ParameterBindingException
    + FullyQualifiedErrorId : PositionalParameterNotFound,Set-UMDialPlan

i dont think we even use any custom prompts
we have a folder which contains all our custom wave files

If you are simply looking to remove the UM role completely, I am assuming that you have tried to uninstall this role from the Program and Features in Control Panel?

If it is a last restore you can also use ADSIEdit to remove this role if you are not going to migrate it.

Remove using ADSIEdit - http://windowsitpro.com/exchange-server/how-uninstall-stubborn-exchange-server
