  • Make sure that you have removed any replica server that you added earlier. Still if its not working and not allowing you to uninstall , try to delete the PF store itself. I am sure , it will not allow you to do so from EMC. In that case go to

    start--run--adsiedit.msc and drill down till
    •CN=Configuration, DC=domain, DC=com
     CN=Services
     CN=Microsoft Exchange
     CN={your Exchange organization name}
     CN=Administrative Groups
    CN={relevant administrative group}
    CN=Servers
     CN={relevant Exchange server}
     CN=InformationStore
     CN={relevant storage group}.

    and delete the public folder store.

    Make sure you have a systemstate backup before going to adsiedit.

  • Hello,

     

    Before the mailbox server role is removed, exchange 2007 setup requires the public folder database be removed from the server.

    Remove Public Folder Databases

    http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd876883(EXCHG.140).aspx

     

    After moving the public folder database on the server, please rerun Exchange Server 2007 Setup.

     

    Best Regards,
