    One of the other engineers has installed EX07 on our 2008 SP2 x64 domain controller.
    It merrily joined the organisation, created a new administrative group, created bridgehead connectors etc.
    He then moved his own mailbox over, and another one.
    I asked him to move his back, as there is no way we’re going to EX07 yet.

    Now the time has come to remove the EX07 installation, and it keeps telling me “Operation could not be performed because object ‘InformationStore’ could not be found on domain controller %1.” whenever It tries to remove the mailstore role.

    I’ve tried changing the targetted domain controller to no avail. I’ve also tried a good old fashiooned reboot.
    What I do notice is that the SA and InfoStore are not started, and when I tr to start the IS, it simply refuses to.
    I can still see the other administrative group, and the server in it, and been able to remove the server from the administrative group..but it just reappeared by itself.

    Any suggestions? I could probably do it the slow, painful ADSI way.. but that would still leave orphaned software on the server..
