Was trying bring the old SBS 2003 server back online to remove Exchange and demote.  Was going to disable SBCore to keep it running, but now it's coming up with disk errors.   Can I proceed with manually removing old Exchange and Domain controller metadata from AD?  Only errors in the logs are related to replication.  Just worried about any long term effects.
