Trouble with Exchange after demoting from DC

If you’re like me, always messing around with VM’s and server configs, etc., than you might have reached a point where you had to demote your Exchange Server from the DC role.

After this your Exchange installation might start giving out some annoying errors like this:


So, being tired of this, I did some research and found this piece of valuable information over at Chris and Robin’s Blog:

The fix for me was not the highlighted one in that thread, but Adam Miceli’s comment:
“Delete this file: c:\users\<specific user>\appdata\roaming\microsoft\mmc\Exchange Management Console”

This COMPLETELY worked and we no longer receive the above errors.

It worked for me and and al is back to its normal state.
