Is this second Exchange 2003 server in a completely different Exchange Organization / Forest?

Normally when you install Exchange 2010 in an environment with multiple Exchange 2003 it will create a Routing Connector with one Exchange Server and make that the local bridge head for all other Exchange 2003 servers to Exchange 2010. I take it, that did not happen here?

Here is the process to create new connectors to new servers.

To remove a Routing Group Connector you can use this command from EMS.
Remove-RoutingGroupConnector

More info on that here,

Yep. You need to remove the Routing Group Connectors before you can uninstall Exchange.

You can use Get-RoutingGroupConnector from the Exchange Management Shell to see what connectors are out there.

Then use Remove-RoutingGroupConnector to take out the connector you want.

To kill all connectors you can just pipe the one command into the other Get-RoutingGroupConnector | Remove-RoutingGroupConnector as these connectors are only used in Exchange 2003.
