Exchange Servers Setup >> Roll back 2003 and ADC

We are trying to uninstall exchange 2003 server that replicates with a 5.5.
We deleted the active directory connector from sites and services "exchange
settings" and uninstalled ADC but when we try to uninstall exchange it says
can't uninstall becouse exchange site replication service is running and must
be disabled and to do it from the exchange system manager.

When we try to delete Site Replication service it says it can't be deleted
from an administrative group that contains pre exchange 2000 servers" so we
tried to stop the service in services but still get the same error

Exchange Servers Setup >> Roll back 2003 and ADC It sounds like you may have had a failed install of Exchange 2003.

-You can manually remove Exchange using Q260378
-You can remove Exchange from Active Directory using Q283027
-You can remove "ADC-Global-Names" attributes from 5.5 mailboxes using
Q319474
-You may also need to remove Exchange attributes from Active Directory User
accounts. You can do this by installing the E2k3 version of ADC, then
opening AD User & Computers on the same server, select User Account(s),
right click, choose Exchange tasks, Remove Exchange attributes.
