How To Remove Roles After An Exchange Server Re-install Or Dead Exchange Server

I had run into a little bit of an issue when install Exchange 2007, which lead me to revert my VMWare ESXi Snapshot back to a later date. Once I did this, I had a fresh install of the same PC. When I tried to install Exchange 2007 I got hte following error message.

“[ERROR] The Client Access server role is already installed on this computer.”

For each rolle that I had installed on said server. I didn’t know why it was doing this. I suspected that ESXi left some reminents of the Exchange Install and that VMWare ESXi Snapshots weren’t really “Snapshots”. So I did a full re-install and still was receiving the above message.

I think starting doing some research and found out that there is Active Directory information that states what roles a server has, and the setup checks this before installing. All I had to do was delete this information. Here is the steps, that I found on the web.

1. Click Start, point to Programs, point to Windows 2000 Support
Tools, point to Tools, and then click ADSI Edit.
2. Expand each of the following items:
Configuration Container
CN=3DConfiguration, DC=3DDomain_Name,DC=3Dcom
CN=3DServices
CN=3DMicrosoft Exchange
CN=3DYour_Organization_Name
CN=3DAdministrative Groups
CN=3DYour_Administrative_Group_Name_Or_Exchange5.5_Site_Name
CN=3DServers

Note In this procedure, Domain_Name is a placeholder for the name of
your domain, Your_Organization_Name is a placeholder for the name of
your organization, and
Your_Administrative_Group_Name_Or_Exchange5.5_Site_Name is a
placeholder for the name of your administrative group or Exchange 5.5
site.
3. Right-click the Exchange 2003 server object, and then click
Delete.
4. Click Yes in every adsiedit dialog box that prompts you to confirm
the deletion.

Once I completed this, I was able to install Exchange 2007 again. I had to process this on the Domain Controller which is a separate machine.

iriver’s UNIT2 detailed on teaser site

One of the sexist and functional MP3 devices I've seen yet. The iPod had its time, and even the smallest iPod is really sexy. But this is just over the top.
iriver's UNIT2 detailed on teaser site -

Filed under: , ,


Mmm, there's nothing like fragmented high-resolution photos of a lust-worthy device to get us salivating, and iriver's marketing department has done an exquisite job figuring that out. Shortly after unveiling the sexiest e-dictionary known to man, the much anticipated UNIT2 conglomerate received its own teaser site, complete with photos and a few extra details you should know. While it has yet to lose its mystique, we now know (officially, at least) that the base will act as a DVD player, TV tuner, access point, charging station, hard drive, and a speaker station. Aside from sporting an SD slot and USB connectivity, this beauty will handle music, movies, photos, eBooks, and WiFi streaming without breaking a sweat. Mechanically, you can expect an automatic sliding door, detachable display, slot-loaded CD / DVD deck, and a 78-key controller to manage the fun. No word yet on the price, but be sure to peek the additional photos below.

Creators Of Mobile Chat For the iPhone Twenty08 Hires AplloIM Developer

If you bought the iPhone when it first came out, you had two choices for Instant Messaging. Twenty08's MobileChat and Alex Schaefer's ApolloIM. Twenty08 has now hired Alex Schaefer to work exclusively on MobileChat
twenty08 would like to formally welcome aboard…Alex Schaefer. Many of you may know him as the founder of the world’s first Native iPhone IM Application, ApolloIM. ApolloIM was an amazing application and during it’s run, MobileChat and Apollo stood head to head and constantly battled to create the better app. (Friendly war of course!) The best part about it was that no one won! Only our respective users benefited from the friendly competition, and you can’t ask for anything better than that as far as I’m concerned. Now with Alex working on our side, we believe that MobileChat will be able to rise up and regain its glory as the number one iPhone application that we all know it can be. He is a very talented developer (plus a great guy) who has already brought some great ideas to the table and we’re all very excited to see our new-found relationship grow.
