Exchange 2003 won't start now.
I've had some major issues with getting Exchange 2010 installed on my other server and I've finally found a document that will manually remove it from the server. http://msexchangehelp.wordpress.com/2010/02/10/manually-uninstall-last-exchange-2010-server-from-organization/ So after I ran through this, I restarted both servers and now my working server which is a Windows 2003 running Exchange 2003 SP2 won't start the exchange services. I tried to reinstall but it tells me that the forestprep and domainprep must be run which I did and both came back saying that it was already prepped. Since I couldn't reinstall, I figured I would uninstall and then reinstall. So I did and now the error that I get is the following; Microsoft Exchange Messaging and Collaboration Service There is no such object on the server Facility: LDAP provider ID no: 8072030 Microsoft Exchange Setup When I started following the instructions using ADSIEdit, I was thinking to myself that I could be opening a can of worms by doing this. Sure did! Help!

"This will COMPLETELY REMOVE ALL Exchange related objects from Organization Completely. As It will Remove all Exchange Related Active directory Objects , None of the Exchange related stuff will work after you complete the following Manual Un-Installation. Please dont follow in case you have any working exchange server ( 2000,2003,2007 or 2010) in your Organization." >So after I ran through this, I restarted both servers and now my working server which is a Windows 2003 running Exchange 2003 SP2 won't start the exchange services. Hmmmm . . . I guess you didn't read it. >I tried to reinstall but it tells me that the forestprep and domainprep must be run which I did and both came back saying that it was already prepped.

Ok, thanks for the reply, I am starting think that I may call them. Will they be able to help getting the Exchange 2003 up and running and help getting the Exchange 2010 server running also?

It is hard to guarentee that, but you need to call. Hope you have a backup of your AD system state handy. Good luck.Tim Harrington - Catapult Systems - http://HowDoUC.blogspot.com

Will they be able to help getting the Exchange 2003 up and running and help getting the Exchange 2010 server running also? I think they'll probably handle those as separate calls. Assuming you have a system state backup of the AD made before you nuked the stuff you'll probably be doing an authoritative restore of the AD to get things back to the point where E2K3 was operational. As it is right now, the schema's been extended and there's no Exchange 2003. I don't know if the E2K3 installation stuff will work under those circumstances. --- Rich Matheisen MCSE+I, Exchange MVP --- Rich Matheisen MCSE+I, Exchange MVP

Hi there, so here is where it stands. I was able to remove Exchange 2003 and reinstall and it is up and running now. My question is how do I reassociate my existing exchange databases with the fresh install of exchange 2003?

hi there, I wound up restoring from backup and now the databases are restored but when I try to put the stores back on line, I get an error C1041724 which generates an event id 9175 'the mapi call oenmsgstore failed' Any ideas?

My question is how do I reassociate my existing exchange databases with the fresh install of exchange 2003? Is everything named IDENTICALLY to the old installation? Organization name, Administrative Groups, servers, etc. The creation of legacyExchangeDN name is dependant on those all being correct. If your Exchange organization's been around for a while you may have a different name for the first AG than the default. THis is an oldie, but a goodie: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?familyid=5ef7786b-a699-4aad-b104-bf9de3f473e5&displaylang=en Use it to rename things BEFORE you install the 1st server. I haven't used it in many years, but it worked when I needed it. --- Rich Matheisen MCSE+I, Exchange MVP --- Rich Matheisen MCSE+I, Exchange MVP

Yeah. See my previous post. Maybe you don't have the legacyExchangeDN name right. --- Rich Matheisen MCSE+I, Exchange MVP --- Rich Matheisen MCSE+I, Exchange MVP
