Well basically I had and Exchange server that I had running to test the
system to move in that direction. Exchange was running on a DC, then I
demoted the machine and uninstalled Exchange. Then I got the new box up and
running Win2k as a DC as well and I went to install the Exchange and I got
errors stating that my test server was still in the First Administrative
Group and to use disaster recovery. The problem was that the test server
was on the shelf and everything uninstalled. I then broughtthe tes server
back online and reinstalled everything and I get the same error. I found an
article on Microsoft's support page to remove an Exchange Organization from
AD. I followed this and I still have the same problems. What do I need to
do to be able to install Exchange on my domain?
