  • Unable to uninstall part of exchange 2000

    Just tried to remove the last 2000 exchange server from our system and we get the following error on uninstall.

    Code:
    Setup failed while Removing Active Directory objects for Instant Messaging Service (error 0x8007200A: The specified directory service attribute or value does not exist.) .
    
    Additional information:
    DN = /dc=uk/dc=co/dc=domain/cn=Configuration/cn=Services/cn=Microsoft Exchange/cn=Anglia/cn=Administrative Groups/cn=First Administrative Group/cn=Servers/cn=MAIL_SRV01/cn=Protocols/cn=RVP
    
    The specified directory service attribute or value does not exist.
    
    Facility: Win32
    ID no: 8007200a
    Microsoft Exchange Setup
    
    Service = ''
    
    mode = 'Remove' (61954)
    
    Setup encountered an error during Microsoft Exchange Instant Messaging Service of Remove component task.
    
    
    Function:
    CDirectoryManager::ScDeleteDSObject
    CAtomIM::ScRemoveDSObjects
    CBaseAtom::ScRemove
    CBaseServiceAtom::ScRemove
    CBaseAtom::ScSetup
    CBaseComponent::ScSetup
    CBaseComponent::ScSetup
    CComExchSetupComponent::Install

    We tested the removal of Exchange in our VM environment and did not have any such issues.

    Could someone please point me in the right direction of how to fix this?

    Is it as simple as creating that value you ADSI Edit?

    Thanks

    Hi,

    You can uninstall Exchange 2000 manually, I have done this with 2003 and it works.
