Hey guys...

I am getting this warning and error messages in the event log. They are referencing a decommissioned Exchange 2007 server that was uninstalled a week ago.

The log says this for EVENT 2937:
   edgetransport.exe () 
   18964 
   [b][b][u]CN=Windows SBS Company Web Connector SERVER1[/u][/b][/b],CN=Connections,CN=Exchange Routing Group (DWBGZMFD01QNBJR),CN=Routing Groups,CN=Exchange Administrative Group (FYDIBOHF23SPDLT),CN=Administrative Groups,CN=First Organization,CN=Microsoft Exchange,CN=Services,CN=Configuration,DC=abbysonliving,DC=local 
   HomeMTA 
   abbysonliving.local/Configuration/Deleted Objects/Microsoft MTA DEL:888bbe54-dd5b-4b0b-b176-78925849b67b 

Open in new window


The bold underlined referenced to SERVER1 is the old SBS2008 server that was turned into a member server until we finish the data transfer. All of Exchange 2007 was removed and everything migrated to the new server correctly.

Now by researching on here I found that this may be due to the AdsiEdit having a reference in the connector group to the old server. This is what I found:

I should delete this reference in ADSI EDIT to fix this right?

Yes, you can get rid of this entry (only if you are sure that the connector is not used anymore). But as only your server was migrated to new, this connector should be there somewhere.  Get-RoutingGroupConnector will give the list.

The safe way to get rid of this error is to change the homeMTA attribute to the new server. You can paste the distinguished name of new Exchange 2007 server here.

Thanks. I ran the command Get-RoutingGroupConnector and nothing was returned.

Then you can safely delete the AD entry. However, I suggest you to update the homeMTA and observe for couple of days.

Thank you. Do you have the correct procedure on how to do this? All of my research shows conflicting results.

To add, the homeMTA of all users is updated and pointing directly to the new Exchange 2010 server. I believe deleting this rogue entry should fix the issue.
