  • Exch 07 HUB dead.

    Hi Team,

    I have been searching on the web for my issue, but I havent find a solution yet.
    here is the issue.

    My HUB server is dead (holding Hub transport/Client Access role)
    I installed a new hub server with a different name to replaced that server.. it is working fine, but now the OLD hub server still appear under
    Server Configuration->Client Access
    Server Configuration->Hub Transport

    How do I manually remove that old hub server?

    Thanks,
    HN

    The only supported method to remove Exchange 2007/2010 is by uninstalling using the given programms, so your best bet is to use setup to uninstall Exchange from the server before removing the server.

    If this isn't possible for you you can try a Google search for manually removing Exchange 2007, but as stated, it's not supported by Microsoft.

      I did google it.. and one post they recommend as you are recommending..

      I do have an image of old hub server.. if I have to I will reimage it and try to bring it back to live and uninstall it the correct way.

      my concern is, if I bring that defected hub up to the production for temporary, would it effect my production environment? meaning would it screw up some setting etc..?

      Thanks,

        As far as I know the server has to be there with Exchange installed, no Exchange service have to run. So I would say it's pssoble to use the image and make the uninstall procedure the proper way.

        If your actual Exchange is correct setup the reimaging should not interfere in any way but it's hard to say without knowing your installation/configuration.

          How old is the image?
          Given the tight integration with the domain, the best way would be to build a replacement machine with the same name, add it to the domain, then install Exchange with the recover server switch. At that point you can then remove it using add/remove programs. No other method is supported.

            The image is about 6months old.
            this server doesnt containing database, only hub transport and client access role.
            I wonder if I bring it to live and make sure it reauthenticate with DC. then uninstall exchange.. would that do the trick?

              I wouldn't introduce an image that old on to the network. While not a fan of images myself, anything over six weeks I consider to be too old to be of much use.
