  • cannot run forestprep after removing exchange completely

    I removed exchange completely from active directory using removeorg
    I cannot run forestprep
    it asks for Full exchange administrator privilege
    I installed only exchange system manager, right click on the server-->delegate control.. -> I see that the administrator has Full exchange Administrator right

    what can I do?

    Even if you removed the Exchange organization your forest remain "prepared", no need to prepare it again. Also, delegated Full Exchange Administrator right has no sens.
    Did you try to run the setup going through the creation of a new org. and setup of the first server?

      the administrator has all the rights needed to install the exchange

      it always asks for full exchange administator right

      "You must be an Exchange Full Administrator at the organizational level. You must use an account that has been granded the Full Exchange Administrator role on the Exchange organization using the Excahnge Administrative Delegation Wizard"

      I don't know what to do
      please help

        Forrestprep and domainprep are run in order to extend the AD schema.
        Extending the Shema is a one way operation.
        Extentions done, can not be undone.
        Altough extentions can not be undone, they can be dissabled.

          ok, forestprep and domainprep cannot be done two times even if I reinstalled the exchange server.
          but what is the solution to install the exchange
