Exchange 2016 Setup - Remove Exchange Server

 

Applies to: Exchange Server

Topic Last Modified: 2015-09-16

On the Remove Exchange Server page, you can remove Exchange from the computer.

When you remove Exchange from the computer, the following are removed:

  • All server roles.

  • All installation files.

  • The Exchange server object and all its child objects from Active Directory.

    importantImportant:
    If you used Setup.exe /NewProvisionedServer to provision the server, you must use Setup.exe /RemoveProvisionedServer after Exchange has been removed from the computer to remove the Exchange server object and all its child objects from Active Directory.

Removing Exchange from a computer doesn’t remove any Exchange-related databases or log files. You must remove those files manually.
