  • You can't just leave that Exchange 2010 server alone - you are going to have to remove it. The only supported way is via add/remove programs. Therefore the best option for you is to reset (NOT DELETE) the computer account, build a new machine with the same name, then install Exchange using the /recoverserver switch. Once installed you can then move those users and remove Exchange 2010 using add/remove programs.
