Upgrading to Exchange 2010 - Removing ADC components
Posted on 2013-12-26
We are transitioning from Exchange 2003 to 2010. As part of the install, you have to make the Exchange environment native. As such, I need to remove the ADC components. Upon initiating the uninstall of the ADC (running setup), I'm running into a bit of a snag. I'm only seeing Microsoft Exchange (6.5), Microsoft Exchange Messaging and Collaboration Services (6.5) and Microsoft Exchange System Management Tools (6.5). Are one of the last two what need to be removed? I just thought something would actually say Active Directory Connector.
I know that you can go into ADSI Edit and delete the SRS under Tools in the System Manager, but I'm trying to do this as clean as possible. In my first run (in 2011), I did a test transition that went OK, but did have some issues. I just can't remember what caused what, so I'm trying to be as clean as possible. I'll definitely need my Exchange 2003 server functioning normally for a few months, as this is going to be a staged migration.
