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"

Here is the MS article that shows you how to perform the removal of an Exchange server 2000/2003 from Active Directory.


Good luck!

Can someone point me to the article or articles that discuss removing Exchange 2003 after the hardware fails? From what I'm told Exchange 2003 SP2 was recently installed but the drives on the server died shortly thereafter. So there's nothing to salvage or recover. The new server is on different hardware so I need to remove this current instance from Active Directory before moving forward with a completely new install of Exchange 2003.
Any responses appreciated.
