Hi There,

I am having difficulty uninstalling exchange 2007, or adding server roles back, and I am positive the cause is because for some reason the server is not listed in AD as an exchange server.

I found this thread in technet which is basically exactly my issue.

I ran all of the commands the thread lists to try, but nothing works.

I know the easiest way would to reformat the server, however I cannot do that due to the fact that this is a temporary hyper-v host for 2 of our VM's.

So is there anything else I can do to rectify this situation, so I can fix my problem?

IF you load ADSIEDIT, can you browse to Configuration, Services, Microsoft Exchange, Org-name, Administrative Groups, Group-name, Servers.

Do it list your Exchange server here?

If it is listed, your can run Setup /RecoverServer to try to reinstall Exchange with the roles again.

A more dramatic step would be to delete the server and any database objects from the AD configuration (see above) and delte the folder:
C:\Program files\Microsoft\Exchange Server\ and delete the services from Registry (HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Services).
