Hello,

Background: An SBS 2008 server (Exchange 2007) was migrated to Exchange 2013 and a separate Domain Controller. Since then SBS server was unbootable and unrecoverable from systemstatebackup. I have been asked to pick up where it was left to clean up.

Luckily, all the mailboxes and databases, etc were already moved and active on the new 2013 server. The SBS 2008 server has been offline for over a week without any mail flow issues.

My question is, what is the recommended way to remove the old exchange server references. Can I just remove the "SBS2008" server from ADSI as it is still showing in the Exchange 2013 EAC list of servers?

Idealy, I would have liked to have been given a system state backup and then performed the usual uninstall of Excahange 2007, but do not have that luxury since the SBS domain controller is offline. I will need to seize the FSMO roles over, but that I expect can be done after.

Thank you
