    Hi, I hope someone can help....

    I recently installed a new Exchange 2007 server in our existing Exchange 2007 organisation to do some testing. Without thinking, I rebuilt it after my testing was done. I now have an entry in Exchange for this server (it was only doing client access role - this is on another server now) in Exchange. Anyone know how I can remove it? Obviously, the server in question is no more so I can't uninstall it properly.

    Any suggestions appreciated!!

    Hello,

    Are you able to temporarily bring back that server, restore it, and uninstall it correctly?

    There is also this information from Microsoft but it sounds like the above is the better solution for you.

    Hi,

    Thanks Raymond that worked a treat. Basically had to recover the entire server and uninstall it properly. Word of caution to all - REMOVE IT PROPERLY FIRST TIME ROUND! It is not easy to clean it up afterwards!!

    Thanks again.
