Title: Uninstalling Exchange 5.5
Post by: ruscorp on June 27, 2002, 12:25:20 AM
Anyone know how to uninstall exchange 5.5 from a win2k box? I installed it hoping to link it up with another exhcange server, but during the installation it said it was unable to because it was setup as a stand alone. Any ideas on how to link them if I cannot get rid of exhcange?

If I remember correctly, insert your exchange installation CD, run the Setup program, and choose the Uninstall option.

At least this is how it works if you installed Exchange from BackOffice Server 4.5

Did you try just deleting the directory?

Actually I'm going to try what RomeoMike suggested. Just haven't got around to it yet.

Dear ruscorp,

I don't know your setup, but here are some thoughts re your initial post:

1. If your Exchange Server has a different organization name than the one you're trying to hook to, you can try Internet Mail, an X.400 connector, replicate public folders between organizations with NNTP, or use the Exchange Resource Kit inter-organization connector.
(Advice from Tony Redmond's book on Microsoft Exchange Server 5.5 Planning, Design, and Implementation). I haven't tried any of these (yet), so I can't comment on their effectiveness.

2. If your Exchange Server has the same organization name, perhaps you can make the underlying W2K server a member server of an existing domain and retry.

At my workplace, this was my setup:

1. I inherited a 5.5 server installed on a NT4 PDC -- it was the first server in a new organization and site.
It's primary purpose was to support Outlook classes, and was kept separate from the Exchange Server handling corporate e-mail.

2. Later I created a separate W2K domain, installed 5.5 on two member servers, and joined them into the existing site.

3. All servers in the site have to have the same service account. This meant setting up a trust between the W2K and NT4 domains. From my personal experience, this meant making the NT4-based service account a member of the local administrator's group on the W2K member servers. Microsoft said Power User membership would be sufficient, but you get fewer errors on installing the server and service packs with my suggestion.

Enjoy.

I believe SBS is keeping me from linking the site.

Dear ruscorp:

Microsoft KB article 221791 (SBS 4.5) confirms your diagnosis. Similar limitations apply to other versions of SBS in KB articles 295765 (SBS 2000) and 194343 (SBS 4.0).

Good luck with whatever course of action you take.

Sucks, now I got a costly upgrade to see on a old machine.
