Good day Yes its me again. I am still battling with moving my exchange 2000 server to Native mode. As I explained before, the server that hosted my ADC was my old exchange 5.5 server, the last one in the org. This server died and my backups are really old. The problem I have is trying to remove this server from my exchange 2k system manager. I have deleted it from the exchange 5.5 admin programme, but it is still reflecting on my exchange 2k console. I don't want to delete the SRS in case it causes additional problems, but I have stopped the service and have noticed not detrimental effects. 3 hours now!! :-) is there anything I can do to remove this service and the exchange 5.5 servers from my 2k manager console??? And then move over to native mode!!! Charles and Raj from the list have given great input, but neither have had the exact same problem as what I am experiencing. Is there anyone who can help me with my crisis?? **Disclaimer** This communication is privileged and confidential and any unauthorized access is prohibited.
