  • Manually removing all traces of Exchange 2003 and dead DC

    We recently switched to Exchange Online. Before we could decommission the old Exchange server, it died.

    So I have a dead Exchange 2003 server that was also a DC. We have a new DC that was put in place before the failure. Since we're using Exchange Online. we will not be setting up another on premises server.

    How can I clean up AD and get rid of everything having to do with Exchange and the old DC?

    Well, the failed DC can be cleaned by following these steps:

    As for Exchange, I would follow this:

      Thanks I'll have a look.

      All the guides I'd found were for getting rid of a failed Exchange server, but still keeping Exchange in the domain. I'm trying to totally eliminate it which is probably not too common.
