    Perhaps if you could share some of the circumstances leading to this we could help, we may have a few telepathic forumites but I'm not one of them.

    Is the old server dead (hardware failure) or have you migrated to a new version/product/cloud? The removal steps are determined by the circumstances.

        If the computer account still exists in AD, you should do a "Disaster Recovery" on a new server joined to the domain using the existing computer account:
        http://www.msexchange.org/articles-t...ry-Switch.html

        Once done, you can cleanly uninstall Exchange which will clean up AD for you

        Under no circumstances should you attempt to clean up AD yourself unless you have ruled out all other options

          my exchange server 2003 server is died (hardware failure) and I can not install another exchange server because exchange organization still exists in Active Directory, so I have to manually remove the Exchange organization from active directory, how do??
