That will remove the org! Use the article below if you're ust trying to remove an orphaned server. Just highlight the server in ESM right click and delete; if that fails; you will have to remove it from adsiedit; the article below shows how.
It was probably best to have rebuild the server using \disasterrecoverswitch since deleting the server manually only deletes the server context in the servers container; though it's never really known to have caused problems.
Scroll to the bottom and just do from section "Remove the Exchange 2003 server from Active Directory"
