Tiiticamara -> Remove a CAS/HUB Exchange 2010 server from AD (7.Jan.2014 6:03:29 AM)

Hello everybody,

i've an Exchange organisation that is composed of:
2 cas/hub servers in an array (cas1, cas2),
1 hub/fsw server (fsw)
2 MBX servers in a DAG (ex1, ex2)

one day i've decided to add an additional cas server (cas3) but some days later it falls down.
So i've decided to uninstall it from AD but i've deleted cas3 computer acccount from AD by mistake some days before. i want to uninstall this exchange server from AD, i've tried to recover it in order to do clean remove but not successfully.

Please advise me, i really need help!!

You can use ADSIEDIT.msc to re-apply Read rights for the new AD computer account to the server here:
Configuration, Services, Microsoft Exchange, <org name>, Exchange Admin Group (..),, Servers, <server name>

Thank you pjhutch for your reply,

I want to use this command to recover the Exchange: setup /m:recoverServer. But i have removed the computer account of cas3 from Active Directory.
Can your solution permit me to do the recovery?? so that i can later do clean remove of cas3.
I don't want to manually remove cas3 from AD by using ADSIEDIT.

You need to re-add the computer back into to AD. You can either restore the account using a restore of AD or create a new account and use that account to re-apply permissions to the server's Exchange config using ADSIEdit.

Make sure that the setup files match the version of Exchange you are recovering. Version 14.3 = Exchange 2010 Service Pack 3!
