I have 3 dbs that I am trying to create, but each time it keeps saying that the dbs already exists when in fact that do not. Now I don't know if someone tried to create these before and then deleted them, but something is still out there for theses 3 dbs.
How do I get rid of them so I can create the 3 dbs?

You would need to look at the domain Configuration Partition with ADSIEdit. Open ADSI Edit, connect to the Configuration partition on your domain, then go to Services\Microsoft Exchange\<Organization Name>\Administrative Groups\<Your administrative group>\Databases.

The list of databases that Active Directory knows of is there for Exchange 2007+.
