Installing & Configuring Exchange 2013 on Server 2012 Standard

I am trying to complete my Exchange installation and I have run into 2 problems. The first is that the inet ecp directory does not exist and when I try to troubleshoot the problem I find this:
Command: Get-ECPVirtualDirectory | Format-List Name,InternalURL,ExternalURL
Response: The task wasn't able to connect to IIS on the server 'Exchange.domainname.local'. Make sure that the server exists and can be reached from this computer: The RPC server is unavailable.

The problem is my server is called MailSvr, not Exchange. Where is the name set and how do I correct it?

Removing Exchange using adsiedit isn't a supported configuration.
The only method that is supported is to use add/remove programs.

Do the servers still show in ADUC? If so, then recover them as I have outlined, so they can be removed correctly.
If you don't want to do that, then a call to Microsoft support is your only option to remain in a supported configuration.

That isn't something that you change, it means you must have a trace of another server in the domain.

Do a get-exchangeserver and see what it comes back with. If there are multiple servers listed then you will have to look at removing the other one.

If the machine name still exists, then you could look at doing a temporary build of Windows with that name, RESET the computer account in AD, then install Exchange using the recovery switches. Once done, remove Exchange using add/remove programs.

If you KNOW that you have another server, because you are doing a migration, then you have to specifically set the server in the commands.

There are 3 servers listed. 2 from previous failed installs. Is there somewhere I can go to remove them? I recall something about they are listed in ADSI but ADSIedit  is a big area without a search function.

Thanks for your insight.  I was afraid this was my only option.
