    A machine with Win2003R2, Exchange2003…

    Once the server is removed from the network is there a way to leave the domain [not rename] without reinstalling windows?

    I’ve forcibly removed Exchange remnants from the server because the installer failed to fully remove it. I’ve checked AD and the org is gone, but now the option to change the domain on this server is greyed. I’ve also experimented with “netdom remove servername /domain:domainname” but it seems to be centered around removing the computer account from the domain not unjoining the pc from it.

    You’d think this would be easier to accomplish – I know the intention was to keep people from screwing up Exchange but what do you do when the installer crashes while removing it?

    Any ideas?
