manually remove a crashed Exchange server

Postby guest » Sun Oct 19, 2008 8:53 pm

You want to manually remove a crashed
Exchange server. I assume we're talking about Exchange 2003

Since this is the first Exchange server in your organization

Please first confirm all resources have been moved to new Exchange server

For more information please refer to:

How to remove the first Exchange Server 2003 computer from the
administrative group
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/822931/

Then use ESM to remove the crashed Exchange server

1. Click Start, point to Programs, point to Microsoft Exchange, and then
click System Manager.
2. Expand Administrative Groups/Your_Administrative _Group_Name/Servers.

Note In this step, Your_Administrative _Group_Name is a placeholder for the
name of your administrative group.
3. Right-click the name of the Exchange 2003 server that you want to
remove, click All Tasks, and then click Remove Server.

If you cannot use ESM to remove crashed Exchange Server, please use
ADSIEdit to manually remove

1. Click Start, point to Programs, point to Windows 2000 Support Tools,
point to Tools, and then click ADSI Edit.
2. Expand each of the following items:
Configuration Container
CN=Configuration, DC=Domain_Name,DC=com
CN=Services
CN=Microsoft Exchange
CN=Your_Organization_Name
CN=Administrative Groups
CN=Your_Administrative_Group_Name_Or_Exchange5.5_Site_Name
CN=Servers

Note In this procedure, Domain_Name is a placeholder for the name of your
domain, Your_Organization_Name is a placeholder for the name of your
organization, and Your_Administrative_Group_Name_Or_Exchange5.5_Site_Name
is a placeholder for the name of your administrative group or Exchange 5.5
site.
3. Right-click the Exchange 2003 server object, and then click Delete.
4. Click Yes in every adsiedit dialog box that prompts you to confirm the
deletion.
