Exchange 2007 – How to Remove the Last Legacy Exchange Server from an Organization

UPDATE: April 23, 2008

Today I used the MS Technet Article on “How to Remove the Last Legacy Exchange Server from an Organization”.  There is one section that is very confusing.  Under the “To remove the last Exchange 2003 or Exchange 2000 server…” section, number 5 gives a Command Shell command to run.  They put “dc=<domain>” but it’s actually “dc=<domain>,dc=<ext>”.  I don’t think “ext” (domain extension) is the correct term, but here’s the example:

My domain name is scc.com, so my command shell will look like this:

Remove-ADPermissions “dc=scc,dc=com” -user “scc.com\Exchange Servers” -AccessRights WriteDACL – InheritedObjectType Group

If you do not have your “dc” correct, then you will get errors!  Copy and paste the code above and change it to match your domain name. 

Thanks to my good friend and volunteer, John S., for spending the time and research to get through this issue on his own Exchange 2007 Server, and for immediately passing it on to me! (We both did our Exchange 2007 Upgrades/Migration at the same time)  Hope this helps!
