How to uninstall Exchange 2007 on a SBS 2008

Hi all,

I receive the error in de screenshot, but as you can also see in the screenshot: there is no public database. I need to remove Exchange 2007.

I don't understand why Microsoft needs to check certain things before removal. I am the administrator, so when I say: remove, then I want to remove everything, including public.

Anyone any ideas on how to fix this?

First of all screenshot is missing.

And if you are 100% sure that public folder is no need or backed up or whatever may be the case you may follow below steps to delete the database instance thru Adsiedit (this is not recommended method, and there is no going back)

Steps:
1.Dismount the Public folder database.
2.Remove public folder database from Exchange Management Console. If it failed, go to step 3.

3.Delete public folder from ADSI Edit:
a. Run"adsiedit.msc".
b. Expand "CN=Configuration,CN=Services,CN=Microsoft Exchange,CN=Organization,CN=Adminstrative Groups,CN=Exchange Adminstrative Group(FYDIBOHF23SPDLT),CN=Servers,CN=Servername,CN=Information Store" then delete the Public folder database from the ADSIEDIT directly.

Hi Satyendra,

proceed with your method now that you have seen the screenshot perhaps?

I see it, do you have other exchange server running with public folder database on it?

In most cases I wouldn't suggest removing Exchange from SBS as it is linked in with everything else, I would just disable it (Obviously too late for that).

Do you just have the one server?  Are you moving to another mail system?

Hi all,

things got a little to complicated, so I decided to reinstall the server, since I had a deadline and the server whas freshly installed anyway. Since I will not be using 2011 SBS and this 2011 version is the last SBS ever of MS, I will accept having Exchange in 2008, eventhough I don't use it, I will disable all services and in the future use the non SBS versions.

Thankx all

No really a solution, more a workaround
