I need to remove a nonexistent Exchange server

I have two exchange server listed, WoodenEX1 and WoodenEXDR.  WoodenEXDR has not been around for a long time and I don't know what happened or why it didn't get removed.  I could have just blew the machine away for all I know.

How do I remove WoodenEXDR from the Exchange server list without messing up my production Exchange server WoodenEX1?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

If the Exchange Server has been completely removed from AD and you have no other way to restore this server then you are going to have to use ADSIEdit.msc to remove the old Exchange Server Objects. Follow the

Remove Exchange Using ADSIEdit.msc

Remember this method is used as a last resort.
