  • SBS 2008 disable Exchange/Errors

    Hello and TYIA,

    Over the last year, a client stopped using in-house exchange and moved to a hosted solution. I disabled all the Exchange services on the SBS 2008 as was suggested on various forum. I was researching a different problem in the event viewr and I noticed that there are a ton of Exchange errors being logged.

    Log Name: Application
    Source: MSExchange Autodiscover
    Date: 7/12/2014 11:28:06 AM
    Event ID: 1
    Task Category: Web
    Level: Error
    Keywords: Classic
    User: N/A
    Unhandled Exception "Exchange Active Directory Topology Service on server localhost cannot be contacted via RPC interface. Error 0x6D9."

    See attached for full error.

    Is there a way to COMPLETELY disable Exchange, or safely uninstall it? I have read that there may be problems with uninstalling Exchange from SBS 2008.

    Thank you,

    If they're not using it what does it matter?

      Recently the server has been slowing down to a standstill and I am trying to rule out issues. I would like to resolve the errors or remove Exchange to troubleshoot.
