Cannot remove or edit Send Connector Exchange 2010
Posted on 2015-01-13
I am at the very end of a migration from Exchange 2003 to 2010. I have followed all the steps in the Microsoft article on this topic. However, after I uninstalled Exchange 2003, I suddenly cannot send email out. I went into EMC and then to Organization Configuration > Hub Transport > Send Connectors and I cannot edit the send connector or delete it. I can view the send connector but it is empty. I tried to create a second one but it would not let me use DNS to send emails.
Here is the error I get when I try to delete or edit:
"The operation couldn't be performed because object 'xyz Send Connector' couldn't be found on 'abcserver.xyz.int'. It was running the command 'Get-SendConnector -Identity 'xyz Send Connector'
Now abcserver.xyz.int has nothing to do with exchange. It never had exchange installed on it, and it is not a domain controller. I am at a loss here and we are dead in the water in terms of email. Any help will be appreciated!
