Hello

Just thought I would post this as I'm sure many others will hit the same issue.

When you move to Exchange 2010 by setting up a new server with Excahnge 2010
on it and then move the mailboxes and public folder replicas and then try to
remove exchange you will probably hit the following error:

Object is read only because it was created by a future version of Exchange

This will mean you are unable to uninstall exchange 2007.
If you try to remove it from the Exchange 2007 console it gives you the same
error and the server is not listed in the 2010 console.

You could probably remove it using ADSIEDIT but this would avoid the check
for public folder replicas and is best avoided. It may leave other bits
behind but I'm not sure.

An easier way I found was to open up PowerShell and type

Remove-PublicFolderDatabase -Identity "<SERVER NAME>\First Storage
Group\Public Folder Database"
(modify this for you environment if you do not use the default names)

I was then able to remove all Exchange 2007 servers.

Hope this helps someone!

Thanks Robin, you are a life saver!
To note, I had to run it from the Exchange 2010 powershell.
