9.   Delete the domain Recipient Update Services.

10.  Delete the Enterprise Recipient Update Service

We need to do those two.

  1. Perform the following steps to delete the domain Recipient Update Services:

    1. In Exchange 2003 or Exchange 2000 System Manager, expand Recipients, and then select Recipient Update Services.
    2. Right-click each domain Recipient Update Service, and then select Delete.
    3. Click Yes.
  2. You will not be able to delete the Recipient Update Service (Enterprise Configuration) by using Exchange 2003 or Exchange 2000 System Manager. Perform the following steps to delete the Recipient Update Service (Enterprise Configuration) by using ADSI Edit (AdsiEdit.msc):

    1. Open ADSI Edit, expand Configuration, expand CN=Configuration,CN=<domain>, expand CN=Services, expand CN=Microsoft Exchange, expand CN=<Exchange organization name>, expand CN=Address Lists Container, and then select CN=Recipient Update Services.
    2. In the result pane, right-click Recipient Update Service (Enterprise Configuration), click Delete, and then click Yes to confirm the deletion

This is one that in my SBS 2008 migration I punted and moved the exchange server to the new server.

It worked fine.
