    So I am new to our company and I was looking around in ADSI EDIT the other
    day for something else when I stumbled onto a series of entries that pertain
    to an old retired and thrown in a trash heap exchange server from many years
    ago...how do I get rid of these entries? will metadata cleanup get rid of
    this issue? if so could someone give me a few pointers before I charge the
    hill...here are the adsi entries...:

    CN=SMTP
    (MBWSVR-02EX-{0DFE47BD-52BF-456D-A746-9FB85A61C26E}),mailGateway,CN=SMTP
    (MBWSVR-02EX-{0DFE47BD-52BF-456D-A746-9FB85A61C26E}),CN=Connections,CN=Meadowbrook,CN=Microsoft Exchange,CN=Services,CN=Configuration,DC=meadowbrook,DC=com


    well thats one of 6 anyways...please help me with this one I am kinda lost

  2. metadata cleanup has nothing to do with this.

    Are you still running Exchange? These are SMTP connectors which you can view
    in ESM under Connectors. I would make sure you're quite certain they're what
    you think they are before you delete them without looking in the ESM GUI.

    I am 100% certain that these are listed no where in ESM

  4. Without knowing what your exchange topology is I wouldn't be comfortable
    telling you for sure that you can cut them or not. If they're not hurting
    anything it may be a better idea just to leave them.
