Decommission OCS 2007 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi Guys

    I am trying to decommission our OCS 2007 environment. I am getting errors in this process. Is there a way to forcefully remove in a clean way??? So i don't have to spend time troubleshooting decommissioning errors.

  • Hi The Exchanger,

    I recommend you do the following steps:

    1. In the OCS 2007 R2 Administrative Console, expand Standard Edition Servers, expand your servers computer name and then right click the “Users” container and click “Delete Users”. Follow the presented wizard to remove all OCS attributes from your SIP enabled user accounts.
    2. Right click your servers computer name and select “Deactivate”, then proceed to deactivate each role in the following order. Performing these steps in the incorrect order will impact the uninstallation of the product.
    3. Once the deactivation is complete, go to the control panel of your server and select either Add/Remove Programs or Programs & Features depending on your operating system version. Proceed and remove the following services in the below order.
    4. Demote your server from the domain and proceed to delete it’s Active Directory computer account and its associated DNS A and SRV records.

    The detailed steps can be referred to: http://www.b4z.co.uk/tag/uninstalling-microsoft-office-communications-server-2007-r2.
