Connecting to Other Messaging Systems

Remove a Connector

Run the Setup program for Microsoft Exchange 2000 Server on Microsoft Windows 2000 Server.

To remove a connector:

  1. On the Windows 2000 Server computer on which you've installed Exchange 2000, insert the Exchange CD into the CD-ROM drive.
  2. On the Microsoft Exchange Server 2000 splash screen, click the Setup tab, and then click Exchange Server Setup to start Microsoft Exchange 2000 Installation Wizard.
  3. Click Next, and then click Next again to accept the end-user license agreement.
  4. In the Action column, for Microsoft Exchange 2000, select Custom.
  5. For Microsoft Exchange Messaging and Collaboration Services, select Change.
  6. For any of the following connectors you want to remove, select Remove:
  7. Click Next to confirm your selection, and then complete the wizard.
  8. Unless the foreign users are migrating to Exchange, using the Active Directory Users and Computers snap-in, delete the users, contacts, and groups created by the connector during directory synchronization. In addition, delete the Exchange users on the other messaging system.

    Tip   Another way to do this is to choose an empty export container on Exchange and synchronize it with the address book or directory on the foreign system you want to clear; and then choose an empty address book or directory on the foreign system, and synchronize it with the Exchange import container you want to clear.

    If you do not delete the obsolete entries, when you reinstall a connector at a later time, the connector will not take ownership of the entries, and in this way multiple entries for the same user will be created in Active Directory and the foreign directory.
