Hi,

I have migrated our exchange server 2003 to 2010 recently. After the migration I have disabled the Exchange 2003 services and restarted the both Exchange 2003 and 2010 and all works fine. Now I have to uninstall the Exchange 2003 server and just wonder I do need to rehome the Recipient Update service to new Exchange 2010? Or can I delete recipient update service objects from the Exchange System Manager where possible and remove Enterprise Configuration from ASDI Edit?

Appreciate any comments from experts please.

Thanks in advance.

RUS is only used for Exchange 2000/2003. You can delete this without any issue. You have to delete the enterprise RUS via ADSIEdit.

Then you can simply uninstall Exchange from Add/Remove programs. You will be prompted if there are any outstanding tasks needed to be done before you can remove Exchange 2003.
