I had a server die. It is gone forever.
It is still listed in the servers folder of the first administrative group in the Exchange System Manager.
When I click "all tasks > Remove Server" I get the following error:
The Server "SERVERNAME" cannot be removed because: -One or more users currently use a mailbox on this server. These users must be moved to a mailbox store on a different server or be mail disabled before uninstalling this server. Facility: Exchange System Manager ID no: c103f492 Exchange System Manager
Any help would be MUCH appreciated.
I cannot access the mailbox stores anymore and I do not care about the lost mailboxes. We deleted the inactive and old users as well. So I am stumped on this one. I just need to remove the old machine.
