You will need to break out the ADSI edit and strip out the old exchange server, is what this looks like. I do have some questions: Is there still exchange in your AD?  How many domain controllers do you currently have?  What is your forest functional level at this time?

the old exchange still shows up under domain controller. only have 1 domain controller right now, and domain functional llevel is 2000. I am trying to make my 2003 server the domain controller so i can add a new 2012 domain controller.

Do you still have exchange installed on the DC?  or did I read that wrong?  If so, it would be best to uninstall the instance gracefully, but that requires media.  Installing Exchange on a DC is not best practice, as it causes trouble. Regardless, this might be do-able.

Below is a walk-through for removing an exchange server.

I've had to do this a few times; there are several places where the AD stores exchange information; it is not simply one container or one entry.  Also, one must be cautious using ADSIedit, as it exposes the entire directory.  It is a 50 pound gun and the safety is off.  Also, what version of Exchange used to be there?  That will inform where keys are in the AD.

Try this, the situation sounds similar:

So you've stripped it out, but the schema upgrade still fails?  I found a technet that details different scenarios and Exchange inter-dependencies.

Can you run a dcdiag and repadmin on the current dc and post these.

here is the dcdiag - the server's name is EXCHANGE because it was going to have EXCHANGE on it - but we never installed and went to another route, and retired the old exchange server.
