  • The suggestion is to go the supported way..

    In that case reinstall a server with same name, ip etc, and do a setup.com /m:recoverserver and have exchange recovered and then do a regular uninstallation from control panel

    That should solve it

  • I think you are confusing mailbox databases with mailbox servers; mailbox databases don't have anything to do with Hub Transport servers. Under Server Config > Hub Transport, there are Hub Transport servers on top and receive connectors on the bottom pane.
