I have replaced a 2012 server running Exchange 2013 and the problem is that when going into the EAC, choosing a mailbox and selectint eh mailbox features, it is clear that Exchange is still looking for the old server name.

The error is cannot open mailbox /o=xxxxxxxxxxxxx/ou=Exchange Administrative Group(GUI)/cn=Configuration/cn=servers/cn=WRONG SERVER NAME/cn=Microsoft System Attendant

I have had a look in adsiedit and removed the server name from there but my feeling is that I will need to do more adsi editing and reinstall Exchange.

Please will someone tell me if I am on the right lines or not and help?

This server and it's dead counterpart are both VM in Hyper-V

Thanks in advance

if the old server is dead, your best options is to rebuild with the same name and install exchange in disaster recovery mode.

exchange is very heavily integrated with AD so in DR mode it will pull all its settings from there and rebuild the configuration that way.  otherwise you will have a bigger mess since there are tremendous amount of settings referring to AD including attributes of user objects for mailbox info
