Situation:
AD domain content: 1DC, 2 members (1 fileserver p2p fileshare, 1 isa server) 10X W2kpro.
DNS configured with MX, A and Cname records.
Exchange prepared with /forestprep and /domainprep, then installed Exchange.
After configuration of Exchange testing the users mailbox for Send/Receiving mail.
1st error stating: "time for inactivity too long" and the second error stating:" Exchange has created an object in IIS that already exists."
When trying to open IIS, the system freezes.
After reboot and click Start, Programms, Exchange manager, when rightclick for properties, it takes several minutes until SMTP, POP, NNTP or HTTP to open up.
On all protocols is an questionmark.
Anyone experienced an simmilar problem?

If this situation happened to me, I would rebuild the server from scatch again rather than try to fix it.

Thank you for the comment.
If I would do a thing like that, then I have to recreate the domain since Exchange modificates the Active Directory, right?

No you don`t have to , you can use the Setup /RemoveOrg command to remove Exchange from the domain completely (only do this as a last resort and after a backup).
If the Exchange settings were correct but server is messed up, you can install Exchange and keep the settings in AD by using Setup /DisasterRecovery mode.

At my first try to remove Exchange from the server, Collaboration Services could not be removed.
Therefore Exchange has not yet been removed completely from the server.
What I allready did remove at the AD after trying to remove Exchange was the Ent.Exch.server and the Exch.Admin account.
Of course I removed the members first.
So, how do I get rid of that Collaboration Services?

Make sure there are no mailboxes left on that server nor any Connectors or that sort.
If no mailboxes are present, make sure that AD accounts do not have old Exchange Attributes attached to that server (see Exchange Manager, Servers, Groups, Stores, Mailboxes).

I'll keep that in mind!
In the mean time while browsing through the partions on the particular server I found that the M partition is still there.
What should I do with that?
While the Collaboration service has not been removed by the Exchange application, I assume that Exchange has not been removed completely yet.
In software I can't find Exchange, so where is it and how should I proceed from here without paralysing the Domain or the server itself?
Usually when uninstalling Exchange, the M partition is to be removed by the Exchange application, isn't?

Yes, the M drive should disappear when the Exchange application has been removed, you can try removing Exchange by inserting the Exchange CD, run setup and set Action to Remove to uninstall exchange.

As you've already noticed, I'm a newbie with Exchange.
Still though, I want to be able to Install cofigure and maintain the Exchange Application myself in the future.
Now, Installing Exchange on a member is more and more common practice.

When I prepare the forest and domain, I need to log on as an Ent.Admin, right?
When I then copy the Ent.Admin to the AdminGroup of the local memberserver, it 'll serve 2 goals, I have full rights at the AD and full rights at the local memberserver.
After the preparation is succesfully done, the setup of Exchange can start.
Then after installation the next step:
To start Exchange and work with it, whom should I logon to: Do I need to logon to the memberserver in it's own computer domain or do I logon to the memberserver in the AD-domain?
Please, explain that to me!

You always log into the domain as you need access to the domain's security setup. Logging on locally will not give you proper access to AD or Exchange.

Then by now I know prbarly where the problem is to find.....
In order to test the Exchange functionality I should have logged into the domain, instead I logged on locally.
That explains all errors, I suppose.....
