Office365 migration failed SBS2011 Server - need to remove Exchange 2010 from the Ad
Posted on 2016-11-26
I have been mid way through a sbs2011 to Windows 2012 R2/Office365 migration.
Secondary Wk12 has been promoted and emails have been syncing to office365
Today was D day to move over all shares and data to the new server and the servers has dead! Faulty hard drive- Luckily i had robocopy scheduled to copy data during the night so there's minimal data lost...i think. still need to review robocopy logs
I have already transferred the FSMO roles over to the new server, still to do a METAData cleanup but i've got that in hand.
i now need to uninstall exchange 2010 as cleanly has possible from AD - other then ADSI.edit and registry.
Any suggestions how to remove exchange 2010 without having to hack AD and registry ?
