Inherited a botched Exchange removal, what a surprise. Best I can figure out is that all roles where removed successfully except the mailbox role. Looked in ADSIEDIT and someone deleted the databases but not the server and they still show in EMC. Some Exchange services are still running.
I have attached the error message I receive when attempting to remove the mailbox role.
Since the databases were removed w/ADSIEDIT the Powershell commands do not work. What if anything else should be purged from AD and at that point can I ignore the rest of the attempted uninstall? We are planning to shutdown the VM which only function was to run Exchange as a member server. Emails are now in the cloud.
