Recently we were working on a project to Migrate a client from Exchange 2003 to Exchange 2010. We have been doing it for long and expected it to be another cake walk but it didn’t turn out to be one. We think the problem could have been that the project was delegated to us halfway and we assume something went wrong in initial server preperation and that caused an Exchange 2010 installation failure or rather a corrupt exchange 2010 Install later. We decided to scrap the server and rebuild new server and Exchange from scratch.
This article is not about the Exchange install we did, rather its about how did we clean up the old Exchange 2010 Metadata from domain, so that the fresh Exchange install can go smoothly.It is utmost important to clean up the previous Exchange install metadata from the domain else we keep getting one error after another.
