Topic Last Modified: 2006-08-17

This topic explains how to uninstall Exchange 2000 Server.

Before you perform the procedure in this topic, be aware of the following:

  • The first Exchange 2000 server installed in an administrative group has certain important roles. For example, the first server hosts the offline address book folder, the Schedule+ Free/Busy folder, the Events Root folder, and other system folders. Therefore, use caution when you remove this server from the administrative group to which it belongs.

  • To uninstall Exchange 2000, you must have the Exchange Server 2000 CD or a connection to your installation share.
