we got a little problem here. We set up a new domain with Server 2012R2. After that we setup an Exchange 2013
on another machine. After everything was installed we were told that the clients still uses Outlook2003. They cant
change to office 2007 or newer at the moment.
So we uninstalled Exchange 2013 to install Exchange 2010 instead.
Something went wrong. Exchange says, that it cant be uninstalled, because there where some mailboxes left.
I know, that you can delete them with Shell:
Get-Mailbox-Database"Mailbox Database <id>"| Disable-Mailbox
Get-Mailbox-Database"Mailbox Database <id>"-Archive| Disable-Mailbox- Archive
Get-Mailbox-Database"Mailbox Database <id>"-Arbitration| Disable-Mailbox-Arbitration-DisableLastArbitrationMailboxAllowed
Remove-MailboxDatabase-Identity"Mailbox Database <id>"
But the shell says, that winRM-Client cant work.... FullyQualifiedErrorId: -2144108297, PSSessionOpenFailed
It cant connect to exchange.
So is there any chance to delete exchange 2013 completly (there is no data stored in any mailbox yet) and install exchange 2010 on this machine or
have we to install a new machine? Or is the problem located in ActiveDirectory? and if, what to do then ?
